The cheerful color and design of this antique French bench circa 1890 makes it a desirable addition to any casual space. The use of the turned spindles that appear across the back gives a lovely decorative touch while the sturdy frame and arms ensure its stability. Both the upper back and lower seat sections feature a repeated design of half sunbursts that echo the circular spindles and provide a definite artistic flair. Whether used alone or with a cushion this painted bench provides an inviting seat for conversation with a friend or contemplation when alone. The seat height is 16".
