British Colonial Mahogany and Cane Library ChairsMid 19th century

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 one continuous section in a typical colonial design. The seat height is 41 cm or 16”.
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 rosewood has a dark shade with a striking grain.
