The Curule Chair called the “Fauteuil de Dagobert,” in gilt bronze, now in the Musée des Souverains.

The chair ascribed to St. Eloi, and known as the Fauteuil de Dagobert, is an antique consular chair, which originally was only a folding one; the Abbé Suger, in the twelfth century, added to it the back and arms.
