This exceptional Gustavian bench is a special find. Note the original pale green painted finish, now scraped down revealing a warm aged patina reflecting the age and grace of this lovely bench.
The finials, feet, and decorative carved details of the back (originally painted a contrasting darker gray or warm brown) are all original.
This bench was originally designed to serve as a type of spare bed; note the seat is removable vs. hinged.
Opened, you will see the seat has been given a foam cushion with linen cover stapled upon it at some point in more recent years as metal springs are visible underneath as well.
Restored, strong and functional this bench is ready to be used and enjoyed.
Any scratches, cracks, dings, or age related separation are reflective of age and do not detract from the beauty nor function of this lovely piece.
Please refer to professional photos for clear understanding of color, condition and details; photo lighting, individual monitor display and home lighting may all impact how item is viewed.
