Padouk is very much associated with Asian furniture made for the colonial market. On a stylistic level, this piece closely resembles late seventeenth century pieces from the reigns of Charles II, James II and William & Mary. Its construction, in cabinet-making terms, is more closely associated with pieces made in the East at this time than European equivalents.
