Featuring in two 1971 Graham Kennedy shows, produced by US company Screen Gems, the throne was built by the GTV-9 props and carpentry department. It appeared in a comedy sketch where Graham played King Henry VIII. Among other antics, he threw a piece of chicken at Bert Newton (playing his court advisor) threatening, 'If you don't pick that up Bert, you won't be in the next series'.

The throne is made of turned and carved wood. The seat and arm rests are covered with plush red velvet and gold buttons, while the head is decorated with a cluster of rhinestone jewels below the mock royal insignia crown, and gold paint finish.
