An extremely rare set of six Sri Lankan coromandel wood dining chairs


Second half 18th century

The back-splats sculpted, the chairs very heavy, upholstery later.

H. 101 x W.52.5 x D. 46.5 cm


These chairs are practically identical to one illustrated in Furniture of the Dutch Period in Ceylon, by R.L.Brohier, plate XVI, fig. 4. The illustrated chair in Brohier’s book, one of a larger suite some of which still remain in the Wolvendaal Church in Colombo, was also made of coromandel wood and already in 1969 had an upholstered seat.
