19th Century, French Limestone Bench


This hand-carved limestone bench embodies the very best of neoclassical design and, at 7.5' long, will make a real statement in your garden, at the end of an allée or perched on your terrace overlooking an expansive lawn. Fabulous, weathered medium gray patina and in terrific condition. Photos 6-8 show the bench in dappled morning light (it does not have spots).
