British Colonial Serpentine Front Sideboard

Late 19th century

SGD 7,350

A stunning British colonial serpentine front sideboard in teakwood. The overhanging top, made of one piece of wood with floral carving around the edge, features a gallery. The front is mounted with four hinged doors with rectangular shaped panels that are intricately carved and pierced with a design of intertwining vines. It also features four carved pilasters. The apron houses two drawers above the side doors. The two sides also carved with an intertwining floral design, but stemming from a pot. The interior is fitted with one shelve. The piece stands on a base, again carved and pierced in the same floral design, while the six small, carved claw feet rest on animal heads.

The sideboard 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 teakwood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring slightly dark shade with a striking grain.
