Anglo-Indian Teakwood RécamierMid 19th century
A British colonial teakwood récamier, with (when facing) a left-hand raised sweeping upholstered backrest and right-hand scrolling foot end. The caned back frame sweeps down and terminates in a scroll. The sweep, roll of backrest and scrolled foot end are decorated with stylized carvings of foliage motifs. The récamier has been newly upholstered with a quality off-white fabric finished with double piping. It stands on four short cabriole legs with acanthus carving on the knees ending on scrolled feet.
The récamier is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. Newly caned and upholstered.
