The Grizzly Bear Chair

With Christmas fast approaching, I’m still on the look-out for creative gifts for my loved ones. The other day I bumped into this vintage photography, which gave me an idea. The Grizzly Bear Chair apparently was a gift for American president Andrew Johnson in 1865 by a hunter and frontiersman named Seth Kinman.

This weirdo with beardo must have had a very morbid sense of humour — he also made a fiddle out of the skull of his favorite mule and gave it to Abraham Lincoln. Hmmm. There surely is a limit to creativity in present making. Isn’t there?
