British Colonial Teakwood Planter’s ChairLate 19th century
A British colonial planter’s’ chair in teakwood. Each arm is composed of a plank with a rounded end, joined with a flat headed dowel to a nearly identical plank that rotates out into a footrest. When not in use these planks are stored beneath the arms. The front legs carved and tapered and terminate in small bun feet. The rear legs are squared off and moderately raked and connected with a stretcher. The front feet are higher so the seat inclines.
