Because of the bulk, size and difficulty of shipping large pieces of hardwood furniture it is unlikely that furniture was commissioned to be made in China for resale in the West. Especially as cargoes of porcelain, silks and tea for example were far more valuable and easier commodities to export. It is more probable that furniture was ordered and made for domestic or public use in the orient and then shipped home.
Cane seating is characteristic of all China Trade seating furniture in the period 1790 – 1840.
