A DUTCH-COLONIAL EBONY TABLE WITH STONE TOP

 

Coromandel coast or Batavia, 1650-1680

 

On four turned legs, overall densely relief-carved, with octagonal black stone top.

W. 76 x H. 64 cm 

Note:

Jan Veenendaal Furniture from Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India during the Dutch period considers the ebony furniture with shallow carvings of tendrils and flowers to be the earliest Dutch colonial furniture, originally made in India along the Coromandel Coast but soon in Batavia as well by Tamil carvers who had fled the Coast because of severe famines and wars in the early and mid 17th century. However, this small table is more likely to have been made on the Coromandel Coast because the original top was made of a black stone that was not found in the settlements of the Dutch in Indonesia in the 17th century.
