The Anglo-Indian Sedan Chair is an extremely rare and one its kind collectors item. Made in Burma teak wood, this chair is a highly sculptural piece with extended arms and side splats to carry the chair by 2 or 4 bearers. The seat and back are caned panels and front legs are hand turned. The back rest panel is double caned to give an overall neater appearance from all sides.

21" x 18" x 34" [W x D x H]   Total length including carrier: 49"

This piece is in excellent condition. The right elongated carrier was chipped at the very edge. 

The chair is finished with traditional natural and black polish and wax. The right carrier tip was restored using salvaged burma teak wood. The caning weave is a 7-step pattern using Assam cane.

Sedan Chair is a litter vehicle. Litter is a class of wheel less vehicles, a type of human-powered transport, for the transport of persons. In various colonies, sedan chairs of various types were maintained under native traditions, but often adopted by the Europeans either for practical reasons (often comfortable modern transport was unavailable, e.g. for lack of decent roads) and/or as a status symbol. During the 17-18th centuries, this form of transport were very popular among European traders in Bengal.
