Anglo-Indian Rosewood Planter’s Chair – SOLDLate 19th century
A British colonial planter’s chair with caned seat and back. The inclined back and seat are caned in one continues section in an intricate pattern, typical of the colonial period. Each arm is composed of a flat plank with a rounded end and joined with a round headed wooden dowel to the arm support. Below the arm is a nearly identical plank that rotates out into a footrest. When not in use these planks are stored beneath the arms.
The front legs are reeded, carved with rings and terminate in a peg foot. The rear legs are squared off, carved and moderately raked. The front feet are higher so the seat inclines.
