British Colonial Teakwood Planter’s Chair

Late 19th century

A British colonial planter’s’ chair in teakwood. Each arm is composed of a 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 and tapered 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 seat and the back have recently been re-caned in one continuous section in a typical colonial design.

The seat height is 38 cm or 15”.

The chair 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 Burma teak wood that this piece has been made of has a warm color and an attractive, straight grain.
