British Colonial Rosewood Planter’s ChairLate 19th century
Antique British colonial planter’s chair in rosewood with a hand caned seat and back. The inclined back and seat are caned in one continues section in an intricate pattern, typical of the colonial period. Each arm is composed of a flat plank with a rounded end and joined with a round headed wooden dowel 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 four cabriole front legs with acanthus on the knees end in paw feet. The rear legs are slightly raked and shorter than the front legs so that the seat inclines. All legs are connected with a stretcher.
