Trouser Watering Chair

Armchair from the time of Frederik III, which is ingeniously constructed to grab hold of guests using hidden tentacles in the armrests. A bound person would then be subjected to running water, which ran from a container in the backrest through a pipe in the seat. When the victim was released and could stand up again, a parp sounded from a trumpet hidden in the seat: it was not to be kept secret that the person had been for a ride in the king’s ‘trouser watering chair’.
