Rare circa 1880 Burmese Solid Rosewood Hand Carved Floral Chair High Back Ornate

$4,916.6820% Off


We are delighted to this absolutely stunning solid Rosewood hand carved high back low seat Burmese chair A truly stunning piece, this type of furniture is just about as ornate as you will see anywhere in the world, intricately hand carved from head to toe, to have a chair of this nature made today would costs tens of thousands This is a good early one, you can see the hand saw marks on the inside of the frame, Rosewood is a very hard wood so it makes for great highly detailed pieces The chair has been restored to include having the frame secured, its then been cleaned waxed and polished. I wouldn’t recommend using it as an actual chair, the back feels way to high for that Dimensions: Height 126 cm Width 65 cm Depth 65.5 cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses Condition: Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
