Mid 19th century

SGD 6,200

A British colonial rosewood cupboard with gadrooning on the edge of the flat top and Fleur-de-Lis carving on the frieze. The floating panels of the doors are carved with a large oval sunburst design, centered with an oval disk. The frames of the doors are carved with elongated reserves. The base has two drawers, each with a recessed brass handle and sunburst carving. The cupboard rests on four ball feet. The interior is fitted with four shelves. The sunburst or Surajmukhi is a typical motif of the state of Gujarat signifying prosperity.

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.
