British Colonial Carved Rosewood Cupboard

Early 19th century

SGD 7,500

An impressive antique carved rosewood cupboard with egg and dart carving on the edge of the flat top, a design that is repeated at the base. The frieze with beautiful floral carving. The floating panels of the doors are carved with a large oval sunburst design, centered with an oval disk and leaf embellishments in the corners. The sunburst or Surajmukhi is a typical motif of the state of Gujarat signifying prosperity. The frames of the doors are carved with elongated reserves and the interior is fitted with four shelves. The piece rests on four solid claw feet.

The cupboard 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 Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
