British Colonial Rosewood étagère

Late 19th century

SGD 2,500

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.
