Vintage Anglo-Indian silvered chased dowry wedding chair covered entirely in silver metal. Great to use as a desk chair or vanity chair.
Such alluring furnishings first began to appear during the Mughal Reign (1526-1707) with the influx of British, French, Dutch and Portuguese explorers who found traditional Indian culture did not utilize tables and chairs, as activities such as cooking and eating were done on the floor.
Euro travelers brought examples of their native furnishings and enlisted Indian craftsmen to recreate them, which gave birth to a distinct oeuvre of Indo-European furniture that blended Western designs with intricate wood and metalworking techniques that had been perfected by Indian artisans for hundreds of years.
With British colonization of the subcontinent, by the 19th century, the princes of India were the primary source of commissions for what became known as Anglo-Indian furniture specifically clad in silver and gold, as these materials are considered pure and purifying in traditional Hindu scripture.
