British Colonial Louver Wall Segment

$3,000.00
Teakwood, Rangoon, Burma, c. 1900. These louvers are fully operable and retain their original finish. The rich surface patina is natural. During the Colonial era (roughly 1850-1950), many veranda houses were built from Teakwood. As cities like Rangoon and Mandalay modernize, many of these old structures are being torn down. Easily removeable elements, like louver walls, are saved. The louver wall system of course, predated air conditioning and was combined with homes elevated on stilts, shaded by leafy trees. The combination of being one floor above the ground, under the trees and surrounded by wide covered verandas provided for relative comfort. People lived on their verandas in the evenings while the rooms inside cooled from the heat of the day. During storms or cyclones, the lovers could all be closed from the inside. Price is for each louver wall segment; multiple available. Wear consistent with age and use. Dimensions for each segment.
