British Colonial Rosewood étagèreLate 19th century
An antique British colonial rosewood étagère with four fixed and graduating shelves between nicely carved supports. It is also supported at the back by a slender upright with a finial on top. The back design allows it to stand in a corner. The étagère became a popular form of furniture in the nineteenth century. Similar to the what-not, the shelves of the étagère provided extra space for the display of the accumulation of knick-knacks that was typical of Victorian home décor.
The étagère is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
