Prayer kneelers or prayer benches were traditionally called prie-dieu meaning "pray (to) God" in French during the 17th century. They were used in churches by the bride and groom during wedding ceremonies, by clerics during prayers, and priests reciting Kneeling Prayers. In private, they were used during individual devotions. This kneeler has carvings scrolled along the sides, an open front, and a sloped top surface for a prayer book. A small drawer provides storage beneath the sloped top.
