Calamander and Coromandel are two very closely related woods from Sri Lanka, also native to India and South East Asia. Calamander is considered to be more striped and similar to what we know today as Macassar Ebony.
Both Calamander and Coromandel are named in reference to the Coromandel Coast of India from where the timber was exported.
Calamander has been logged to extinction over the last two to three hundred years and is no longer available for new work in any quantity.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
