British Colonial Mahogany SideboardMid 19th century
A very decorative antique British colonial sideboard made of mahogany. The sideboard has two carved doors between two spirally turned pillars. The panels of the doors are carved with a sunburst radiating from an oval disc at centre and open to reveal an interior with 2 shelves. The cabinet stands on a carved base supported on four paw feet. The sunburst or “Surajmukhi” is a typical motif of the state of Gujarat signifying prosperity.
The sideboard is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The mahogany has a rich warm shade with a striking grain.
