This antique, Anglo-Indian chair is a great statement piece rather than a useable chair. Some people describe them as Burmese, but usually they’re called Anglo-Indian. The quality from the 1860s and 1870s is usually amazing and this is a particularly good example. It still has its original needlework seat which is slightly faded as you’d expect after some 150 years . The back is slightly loose , but as they were never intended for sitting on this is not unexpected. If you look extremely closely you might see some very small knocks to the intricate carving , but nothing you would normally spot .
Its the antithesis of the Danish mid-century look we are best known for, but we like the contrast particularly when the quality of the carving and the timber used is as good as it gets .
We believe the wood is Padauk which when it ages looks very similar to some types of rosewood .
