This is a Prie-Dieu (Pray to God - in French) salvaged from Mount Mary's Basilica in Bandra, Mumbai.
It was being thrown out before U. H saved it for me. It is circa 1905.
Was is a terrible state when I got it, but saw it's potential and rightly enough.
It sits below our Altar Box holding one of Lynda's painting books.
I just love ecclesiastical furniture
