18th Century Colonial Chair Back Settee

An 18th century Colonial chair back settee. Exceptionally original. The seat has the original upholstery topped with the first fabric to cover it. A single historic repair to one arm with the head of the hand made nail still just about visible, the colour of the tropical hardwood used is sublime. A really interesting and rare piece. Elements of English, Dutch, Swedish and French furniture styles of the period combined which is unsurprising as it was constructed in the golden age of Colonial occupation to much of the East Indies by many European states. An incredible survivor.

It's very simple, Drew buys what he likes.

He has been dealing in architectural salvage and antiques for 29 years working initially as a stained glass restorer and designer. A member of LAPADA, Drew has spent 23 years as an independent dealer working from his base in North Wales. His business is driven by passion, an innate knowledge of antiques and a fascination with mixing items from different periods which has earned him a loyal client base of private individuals, interior decorators as well as partnering the best in his field on global and UK based projects.

He combines his many business commitments with sourcing new stock from across the UK and regularly exhibits at major London antique fairs where his show-stopping stands continue to be a great success.
