Large 19th Century French Limestone Bench with Rounded Edges


What a beauty! Hand-carved from limestone and with lovely rounded edges on the seat, this garden bench has a nicely-weathered surface and is in very good antique condition. The two supports have rectangular incised detail that are classically-elegant. There is an obvious chip to one top corner of one support (shown in photo #8) and minor chipping to the bottoms of the bases. 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.
