Indo-Portuguese Mahogany SetteeMid 19th century
A beautifully carved Portuguese colonial or Indo-Portuguese mahogany settee with a quadruple back and newly caned seat. The shaped individual chair backs and rolled armrests are carved with a floral pattern. The settee stands on five reeded and tapered front legs and five square and raked hind legs. The front legs are connected with a stretcher to the hind legs.
The settee 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 mahogany has a rich warm shade with a striking grain.
