Learn about Anglo-Indian

Used to describe furniture and furnishings made in India from the 18th century onwards by Indian cabinetmakers using local timbers and accessories, for the colonial British market and wealthy locals, that was a fusion of the styles and techniques of the two cultures. Teak, camphor wood, padouk, coromandel and ebony were common timbers, and the furniture was sometimes inlaid with ivory or bone, and usually extensively carved with Indian themes including elephants and intricate foliate designs. Similar furniture was made in other colonies such as Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Kashmir.
