This long antique pine bench from Romania still maintains the original folk art paint from 1935, when it was created. The traditional folk art of the late 1800's into 1900's included floral motifs painted in panels, often using blue or red backgrounds such as this one. It has a low seat back, and the 2 bench seats lift to reveal hidden storage below. The wear and fade of the paint on the seat reflects its 80 years of use, and adds to the country charm of the bench. The entire bench has been restored and waxed, so it is strong and ready for use.
