Cast Iron Curtain Style Bench

About

An unusual cast-iron curtain-style garden bench with scalloped and beaded apron, leafy scrollwork, stylized floral elements, and simplified Gothic motifs, American, circa 1900. Measure: 34.75 ins. high, 63.75 ins. wide, 20.5 ins. deep. This pattern a version of the uniquely American curtain-style seats popular in the 1880s and 1890s, was termed the “New Design Ornamental Settee” in a J.W. Fiske Iron Works (New York) catalog published between 1908 and 1912. After its debut, it was simply called the “Ornamental Settee”. This particular example is missing the cresting that should be situated atop the upper rail of the back. This seat, longer than the two-seat, three-seat, and four-seat models noted in the catalog, may have been a custom piece.
