Satinwood was a very expensive timber used in the 18th century and was often used to create decorative veneer patterns in antique furniture. Satinwood originates from the West and East Indies and was imported into Britain by firms such as Gillows. This timber was used for making and veneering furniture in the Georgian period by cabinet makers such as Hepplewhite. It was also widely used in late 19th Century Edwardian and Victorian furniture. As Satinwood is such a lovely golden warm colour with a close grain, it was perfect to French polish to a high sheen. This superb timber can be seen in quality pieces of antique Satinwood furniture for sale and here at antiques world we have wonderful examples available.
