Pair of Anglo-Indian Satinwood Benches – SOLDLate 19th century
A pair of British colonial rectangular benches with an overlapping top made of one solid piece of rosewood with a beautiful grain. The frame and legs are made of satinwood and are finely turned, ending in a peg foot connected with a double box stretcher.
The benches are in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The rosewood has a dark shade with a striking grain. The Satinwood is close-grained, hard, and light yellow to golden brown in color with a lustrous satin-like quality.
