Mid-19th Century Mahogany Bench with Old Needlepoint, England, circa 1840


We don't know if the needlepoint upholstery on this bench is original, but it is certainly very old and beautiful, its worn condition gives the piece a patina and genuineness that cannot be copied. This sturdy bench is unusually wide and is excellent for seating or for use as a coffee table. The frame has finger molding and cabriole legs with solid brass wheels.
