1940's Civil Service Daybed

R 5,450.00

An elegant and sturdy daybed from an old state institution, probably from the waiting room of a heart specialist, or the sun-room of the matron of a state hospital.

The cushion is new. The one side is covered in a rough burnt orange weave, and it can be flipped over to reveal a brown faux suede side.

The wood seem to be an African hardwood, most probably what is known as matumi aka wild-oleander aka Transvaal teak (waterboekenhout in Afrikaans). This wood was commonly used in early government furniture in South Africa.  

Condition: Very good used. New cushion.

Dimensions: 78 (d) x 200 (w) x 69 cm (h) and 45 cm seat height.
