seat

Rectangular swing seat made of wood with ivory fretwork on each side. One side of the seat has flower and star shaped patterns inside a smaller rectangle. The reverse has a more simple design with parallel straight lines. There are star patterns of ivory around the outer edge of the seat, and at each end there is a semi-circle shape cut into the wood. Remains of old label seem to include the word 'Simla'.
