4 dining chairs from the Durbar Room for Osborne House designed by Kipling and Bhai Ram Singh.

The architectural form, door furniture, light fittings and wooden furniture were all included in the design. Unlike other 'Indian' rooms of this period which were furnished with a mixture of European and Indian pieces, the Durbar Room presented a unified scheme, albeit more Art and Crafts than Indian.
