Dutch Colonial Javanese Teak Settee with Carved Décor and Inset Woven Rattan
DimensionsW: 77" | D: 23.5" | H: 36"
An antique Dutch Colonial period Javanese teak wood settee from the early 20th century, with inset woven rattan, carved back, large out-scrolling arms and curving legs. Created on the Island of Java during the early years of the 20th century, this teak wood settee attracts our attention to its generous lines and richly decorated back. Topped with large and graceful carved volutes, the back is connected to two large out-scrolling arms with carved rosettes in their extremities. The back, along with the seat, is made of hand-woven rattan. The settee is raised on four elegant feet, shaped like animal legs.
This type of Dutch Colonial settee is derived from the English Grecian sofa designed by Thomas Sheraton and introduced in the Dutch East Indies by Thomas Stamford Raffles when he was Lieutenant Governor between 1811 and 1816. With its graceful lines and skillfully executed décor, this teak Javanese Dutch Colonial settee circa 1900 will bring a touch of relaxed elegance to any home, placed indoors or under a covered patio.
