Antique Colonial X Frame Dining Chair
Made of teak with a caned seat, this Anglo-Indian X frame chair is directly influenced in its design by the English version shown below. There are differences of course and the two chairs offer us a rare opportunity to study them. To pack down for travel the seat of this chair is lifted off its brass locating pin to the front rail. The seat is hinged to fold against the chair back and in that position the X frame legs will also fold to allow the whole to flat pack. The only decoration to the chair is the parallel line moulding cut to the back on both the uprights, top and cross rails. This moulding continues round the scroll to the tops of the uprights. The antique period is circa 1825.
