What an incredible antique bench, straight from the original owner's antique family home. This piece has been lovingly cared for for generations. Hand made and constructed with what appears to be maple. Original rush seat. The back rest is our favorite part. The curved back with the criss cross bars and center cross medallions give this piece the extra umph that makes an antique utilitarian piece extra special.
The areas where the wood legs and arms meet shows the hand made construction. See photos.
Original wood finish with some surface wear. This piece is not refinished and has all of it's original patina. The rush seat is original and tight and sturdy with minor surface wear. One little piece of wood is missing on the side rail. It appears an old knot of wood created a scoop out when it left the bar (see photo)
