Receive our new selections direct from 1stdibs by email each week. Please click Follow Dealer below and see them first! 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".
