Wedding Chair from India

By mwilcox


Throne/Wedding chairs like this were made all over India and the Middle East, most are made of local hardwoods such as mahogany, rosewood and teak. Without actually physically examining them determining the wood type is difficult, but most are mahogany. Based on the images this one is from India and dates from the late 19th Century. Dating them can be difficult because traditional designs have not changed much in the last hundred years and most are handmade, as were examples from well over 100 years ago. In the current market comparable examples to this one sell in the $350.00- $500.00 range.
