This bench has a romantic country feel to it thanks to the original hand-painted details that have been well preserved through the years. Unique to this bench with storage hidden in the seat below is the lower back at only 27" high. The brown painted faux wood finish (traditional for the era) is highlighted with traditional floral details and flourishes of blue, cream and yellow. The bench seat is not hinged, but built to be removed as it originally served as a type of spare trundle bed (the base section can be pulled out). The bench has been restored and given a wax finish, so it is strong, stable and ready to use and enjoy. Seat height 19"
