CONDITION
This piece is in good condition. When we sourced the piece it had been restored replacing the missing leg rest with a new mahogany wood one.

RESTORATION
The chair is finished with traditional natural polish and wax. The added leg rest is polished to match the main chair. The caning weave is a 7-step pattern with intermittent diagonals using Assam cane.

HISTORICAL CONTEXT
The Europeans were constantly travelling between Europe and colonies and being on the move necessitated taking chairs with them. Folding steamer chairs became familiar sights on ships that traveled to foreign ports. Later, they appeared in tents and on verandas as plantation chairs.
