Rattan is the name for roughly six hundred species of palms native to tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australia. Raw rattan is processed into several products for use in furniture making. From a strand of rattan, the skin is peeled off and used to make woven seat bottoms for chairs, also called caning. The remaining core of the rattan can be used to make wicker. Rattan is a very useful material because it is lightweight, durable and flexible. Rush bottom chairs are made in a similar weaving process using strands of grassy plants.
In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.
This item shows normal wear consistent with age and use.
