Most of the Indonesian classic furniture embellished with elaborate carving. The pieces hand carved with an interlaced decorative design, low relief carving on solid wood structures with cut out fretwork carving panels. Quality hardwood with detailed carving, they were made for nobles.

People furniture

While the Indonesian nobilities use elaborate carving furniture, the common people in the colonial period familiar to rustic furniture. Most of these villagers use a trunk for storage, bench, table, and other basic furniture.

At that time, the citizens of Batavia city (now Jakarta) began using furniture to furnish terrace, living room, and kitchen. The dining chair using straight legs and arrow feet while the terrace chair using cabriole legs and cuffed feet.

The furniture became a symbol of wealth for the people, the terrace furniture looks more beautiful than bedroom furniture. This is because the terrace furniture can be seen by outsiders.

Simple carving panels

The Batavian mirror features plain frames and panels decorated with simple carving. The mirror enclosed by two doors assembled of plain frames and trellis.

The mirror design is similar to the Javanese carving mirror that usually owned by aristocrats in Central Java. The mirror panels on the frame decorated with cutout fretwork wood carving. This carving type is used in most of the furniture design in Central Java.

Both mirrors made of teak solid wood, using solid brass hinges and knob for the doors.
