This delightful late 19th century storage bench from Hungary still maintains its original blue paint. The charming, simplistic flowers on the front panel were a traditional folk art style of the period. The hinged seat, with the paint slightly worn from years of use, lifts to reveal ample storage for blankets,quilts, or even shoes in a mud room. Professionally restored and finished with a satin wax, the joints are tight and the hinged seat functions well. Please enlarge the photos to appreciate the wonderful blue color and craftsmanship of this bench.
