Note:

These so-called “Kuststoelen” (coast-chairs) with the low relief carving, made on the Coromandel Coast, are the first European style chairs to appear in Batavia in about 1660. The furniture makers on the Coromandel Coast were mainly Tamils but due
to wars and famine in southern India during the first half of the 17th century, many of them ended up as slaves of the VOC in Batavia where they continued their work as furniture makers.
