Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
In early 19th century Ceylon furniture was being made to the latest tastes using panels of carved ebony taken from seventeenth century furniture. A set of four setees and two chairs of this type was sold to King George IV by E.H. Baldock in 1828 for £125. Other examples of this type of furniture can be found at Capesthorne Hall, Penrhyn Castle and Penshurst Place.
For a full and fascinating history of this furniture see "Furniture From British India and Ceylon" by Amin Jaffer.
