Anglo-Indian teakwood planter’s chairLate 19th century
A British colonial planter’s’ chair in teakwood. Each arm is composed of a flat plank with a rounded end, joined with a flat headed dowel to a nearly identical plank that rotates out into a footrest. When not in use these planks are stored beneath the arms.
The front legs carved with three rings and terminate in small bun feet. The rear legs are squared off and moderately raked and connected with a stretcher. The front feet are higher so the seat inclines. The front- and hind feet are connected with a stretcher.
