Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

What a beauty! Hand-carved from limestone and with lovely rounded edges on the seat, this garden bench has a beautifully-weathered surface and is in excellent condition. The two supports have rectangular incised detail that are classically-elegant. Chip to one top corner of one support (shown in photo #8). Perfect at the end of an allée or at the crest of a hill where a light colored piece will pop against a green background.
