A SRI LANKAN SATINWOOD AND CANE TOURNANT 'BURGOMASTER' CHAIR 


Third quarter 18th century

 

On six winged legs with claw-feet connected by knobbed stretchers, the seat rotates.

H. 88 x W. 79.5 cm
Height seat 46 cm
Diam seat 59 cm

Note:

This so-called “Burgomaster” (mayor or judge) chair has two nicely carved heads of judges on top of the two front uprights and in addition, is unusual in that it is one of the few known rotating ones. The seat can rotate on the base on small metal wheels running over a brass strip. Since these chairs are heavy and box-in the sitter it seems useful to have the possibility to rotate.

n oval plinth, sitting on rockwork, wearing original leather falconry hood and jesses with bells.
