French Black Lacquer Ebonized Louis XVI Window Bench with Abalone Shell Inlay



This is a very unique window bench. The size is quite rare at 47 wide x 9 inches deep x 28 tall. The seat height is 16 inches. The bench features a black lacquer finish with abalone inlay on its sides which I have never seen before. Its a small detail but it definitely adds to the beauty and glamour of this bench. The bench dates to the 1940s and is French.
