The gentle curve of the arms and lovely carved details add to its appeal, while the light distressing compliments its age. The padded seat opens to reveal storage space below. Note in the detail photos that the lower section can pull out when the seat is removed as it was originally used as a type of spare bed. The padded seat is covered in a dark gray fabric, while there are a couple snags in the fabric you may use it as is or easily have it re-upholstered. This bench has been given a wax finish, It is fully restored, strong and ready to use.
