French 18th Century Long Rustic Baux Stone Bench

About

This rustic beauty is a rare piece indeed. Made of a local stone quarried near the Provencal town of Baux, it is known as Baux stone and is a creamy pale peach color underneath its heavily lichened and mossy surface. There is a shallow, but fist-sized chunk out of one of the corners (shown in photos) that will weather over in a few years time, or we can have it colored for you. The two supports, which are not the same dimensions, but original to the bench, have been mortared in place and we have since colored the one that had grey mortar (see last photo), so it now blends with the rest of the bench. The front side has lovely stepped carving along bottom of the seat, but the back of the bench is plain and strait. One end of the top is uneven and cants backwards from the front, but we think it only lends to the rustic nature of the piece. Please note that this piece weighs on the order of 600 lbs. and you will need a forklift or 8 strong men with a pallet jack to unload it at your end, as it will be on a pallet.
