A truly stunning piece, this type of furniture is just about as ornate as you will see anywhere in the world, intricately hand carved from head to toe, to have a chair of this nature made today would costs tens of thousands. This is a good early one, you can see the hand saw marks on the inside of the frame, Rosewood is a very hard wood so it makes for great highly detailed pieces. The chair has been restored to include having the frame secured, its then been cleaned waxed and polished.I wouldnt recommend using it as an actual chair, the back feels way to high for that. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
