British Colonial Rosewood Planter’s Chair

Late 19th century

SGD 2,350

An Antique Rosewood Planter’s Chair. The inclined back and seat are caned in one continues section in a pattern typical of the colonial period. Each arm is composed of a flat plank with a rounded end joined to the arm support. Below the arm is a nearly identical plank that rotates out into a footrest. When not in use these planks are stored beneath the arms. The front legs are reeded, carved with rings and terminate in a peg foot. The rear legs are slightly raked and shorter than the front legs so that the seat inclines. 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.
