Antique Small Pine Bench With Storage, Sweden

This delightful bench is a special find. The small size is unique, as most benches of the era were 5-7' long. In addition, this one was designed as a spare bed for a child. Notice how the seat lifts to reveal storage space inside? When extended, the interior could house a small mattress similar to a modern day futon. Today, most would choose to simply use the bench interior as extra storage, but the origin and use of this bench was quite tradtional in Sweden during the 1800's. This small pine bench is part of our “un-restored” collection and is being sold in "as is, used" original condition; how we found it in Europe. You are welcome to contact us directly if you would like to learn more about this or other items, we will be happy to assist you further.
