Antique Colonial Folding Chair
The use of solid satinwood in the construction of this chair points to its colonial origins with Ceylon being a possible place of manufacture. The design is clever with the seat hinged to the front pair of legs and sliding on pins within the back legs allowing the whole to fold very flat. The shape is very aesthetic and has a modern, understated feel to it which is set off by the warm colour of the satinwood. It is interesting to note that the maker originally cut the timber to the underside of the seat in the wrong place to take the hinges. Late 19th Century.
