British Colonial Art Deco Bookcase

Sale price$13,000


This impressively-scaled book cabinet was made from solid Teak wood and dates to the 1940's. During the late British empire in India and Burma much furniture was made in the Art Deco Style using local hardwoods and native furniture builders. Art Deco was the word's first truly global furniture style and it embodied the modern belief in progress. since teak wood is naturally resistant to insects and moisture, a surprisingly large amount of it has survived, especially in Burma, now Myanmar. Restored, Re-Varnished. Glass Panes are new. Rangoon, c.1940.
