A FINE INDONESIAN EBONY LOW CHAIR​

Jakarta (Batavia), 1680-1720

Robustly carved with scroling flower motif, on four turned legs and bun feet.

H. 82.5 x W. 49.5 x D. 44 cm

 

Note:

Type I, robust carvings (page 30- 32, Jan Veenendaal in Wonen op de Kaap en in Batavia 1602-1795, Titus M. Eliëns ed., Waanders, 2002) were probably made by Tamil woodcarvers working in Batavia. The carved flowers in this chair correspond closely with the illustrations of flowers, particularly of tulips, in Florilegia by E. Sweerts, a large illustrated book of garden flowers published in the Netherlands in 1612.
