Mid 19th century

SGD 4,800

A pair of antique Portuguese colonial folding chairs made of rosewood. Each chair is composed of three components joined with steel screws; the back, the seat and the arms, each extends down to form one of the three pairs of legs. The dome shaped back with a carved pierced crest rail and a central caned panel. The shaped arms end in a carved animal head and are secured with hinges to the arm support. The seat and the back have recently been re-caned in separate sections in a typical colonial design.

The chairs are in good condition and have been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Indian rosewood that the chairs have been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
