A fine example of 19th century Anglo Indian craftsmanship in the form of a caned chaise lounge. Crafted from mahogany the base of the day bed retains its original caning which sweeps up to a scroll terminal at one end. The upholstery of the piece has been refreshed with a removable blue cushion and bolsters which both feature white piping. The carved and reeded legs are perhaps the most decorative part of the chaise which was made in India during the second half of the 19th century.
Anglo Indian furniture typically refers to pieces made by Indian craftsmen for the English Colonial market. Anglo Indian furniture was at its height from the late 18th through to the early 20th century, and combined Indian craftsmanship and exotic timbers with English furniture styles.
