Pair of British Colonial Ebony Library ChairsMid 19th century
A pair of British colonial library chairs in ebony with hand caned seat and back. The top rail with a shell carving at centre, the seat apron reeded and the arms rest on ball supports. The front legs with multiple turnings and the rear legs slightly raked and shorter than the front legs, so that the seat inclines. The seat and the back have recently been re-caned 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. Ebony is a rare, expensive black wood of very close grain and is heavy in weight.
The price quoted is for the pair of chairs.
