A stylish and unusual antique Indian dresser and dating from late 19th Century. In a beautifully figured tropical hardwood, the top carved with Ganesh and attendants and stylised florals, above two open displays, and the lower part with two panelled doors and standing on shaped feet. The doors open to reveal storage with a removable shelf. Often pieces of furniture of this type were constructed for the British Raj, their families and the British Military in Colonial India. The dresser dismantles into three sections and often these pieces were designed to come apart so they could be easily be transported to summerhouses in the hills. One of the brass hinges is stamped with a depiction of the young Queen Victoria as she appears on an Indian rupee from circa 1860s-1870s, with the word “Bombay” instead of Victoria. To the back of the piece are old paper labels, one from the shipping company White and Co ltd. A beautiful and unique piece that would be a statement in any room.
Good condition. Nice patination to the wood. General wear and marks commensurate with age. An old mend to the bottom of the door. An old mend to the side of top pelmet. A few small splits to the panelled doors. Comes with a key but doesn’t lock.
Width at feet: 92cm
Depth at feet: 38cm
Height to Cupboard Top: 73cm
Height to Top of Pelmet: 154cm
