Portuguese Colonial Rosewood Bench

Late 19th century

SGD 4,200

A richly carved antique Portuguese colonial bench in rosewood with a triple back. The shields of the balloon chair backs are carved in an elaborate floral pattern as are the undersides of the scrolled arms. The very deep, scalloped apron is reeded and has floral carving as well. The bench stands on two reeded, tapered front legs and two raked rear legs.  This very decorative piece is finished with a new, caned seat.

The bench 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.
