Paul Kruger, president of the Transvaal Republic, arrived in Europe in 1900 on the Dutch warship Gelderland. On board ship he used this chair, which he had borrowed in Mozambique. Kruger never returned the chair, but presented it to the captain of the warship with some ceremony when he disembarked at Marseilles. The captain later gave the chair to the Rijksmuseum
