British Colonial Rosewood Planter’s Chair

Mid 19th century

SGD 2,400

A  British colonial planter’s chair in rosewood. The top rail and seat apron have been beautifully carved with a floral design. Each arm is composed of a flat plank with a rounded end joined to the arm support. Below this arm is a nearly identical plank that rotates out into a footrest. When not in use these planks are stored beneath the arms. 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 a typical colonial design.

The chair 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.
