AN INDONESIAN SATINWOOD LOUIS-XV ARMCHAIR

Indonesia, Java, second half 18th century

 

Decorated with carved floral motifs, with caned back and seat.

H. 96.5 x W. 58 x D. 59 cm

 

Note:

This chair in the French Louis XV style, except for the rather un-French bulky ends of the armrests, became fashionable in the second half of the 18th century in the Dutch East Indies. Although the satinwood is from Sri Lanka, this type of chair is usually supposed to have been made in Java (Furniture from Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India during the Dutch period, Jan Veenendaal, 1985, page 105).
