Take me to the Opera!

Shades of Georgette Heyer novels. There is something about sedan chairs (like this one on eBay). 
Oh my goodness I love them.   
They have that whole tapered shape not unlike many etui/necessaires of the period.  
I can imagine myself being 'chaired' around to elegant card parties with ostrich plumes in my hair (perhaps not too high or I wouldn't fit in).
And while they look the height of elegance I am sure the 'ride' was a bit bumpy.
