19th Century Rosewood Colonial Plantation Chair

  • A handsome 19th century Colonial rosewood plantation chair with extended arm/leg rests.

    In a really wonderful antique condition, this Anglo-Indian chair features beautifully hand-carved friezes on the top and front rail, depicting flowers and leaves, with turned acanthus hand-carved legs. The cane work is in perfect condition.

    The best Anglo-Indian furniture was commissioned by British officials during the Raj and was often beautifully carved or inlaid solid teak or Indian rosewood. This fabulous Plantation chair dating from c. 1880 is a fine example of such Indian craftsmanship with the beautifully detailed carvings - featuring floral and foliage on the friezes and turned acanthus carved legs.

    The overall depth of the chair is 160cm.
