    Cool A gilded chair scant

    What's a gilded chair scant?

    I know scant as a adjective, verb and even adverb, but not asa noun.

    Any clue? Thank You

    There have been a blast, and all the room is uneven, moving, and one of the affected is clawing his way over the jagged remnants of what had been a gilded chair scant moments before.

    Thank You
