Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 10:18-26

_ _ a great throne of ivory — It seems to have been made not of solid ivory, but veneered. It was in the form of an armchair, with a carved back. The ascent to it was by six steps, on each of which stood lions, in place of a railing — while a lion, probably of gilt metal, stood at each side, which, we may suppose from the analogy of other Oriental thrones, supported a canopy. A golden footstool is mentioned (2 Chronicles 9:18) as attached to this throne, whose magnificence is described as unrivalled.
