Description
A rare and finely carved Anglo-Indian - Ceylonese solid ebony and padouk wall bracket / shelve from the Galle district. Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Circa 1830 Constructed from solid ebony, the finely carved rectangular upstand, boarding an inset solid padouk top above a pierced foliate scrollwork apron depicting carved dragon heads to either end. The top is held by three shaped ebony supports, having a square central column terminating on a floral rose carved relief. In excellent condition this unique wall shelve has been carefully restored and wax polished to be ready for use. Please note : Solid ebony Ceylonese furniture of this fine quality is extremely rare to find and sought after by private individuals and collectors alike. The Galle district in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) was renowned in the 19th century for its exotic-wood furniture. Primarily for the export market, shelves such as these were supplied to British colonists and eventually exported back to Britain, ebony often being a primary material and very fashionable.
