Pair of 18th Century Carved and Painted Baroque Tuscan Arm Benches

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A fabulous pair of 18th century painted Baroque style Tuscan arm benches with carved lyre shaped legs joined by a carved stretcher and upholstered with antique ecclesiastical embroidered fabric and fringe. The well defined and raised metallic gold filament thread embroidery forms a beautiful floral and foliate design. It's not often we run across a pair of benches like these, especially in all original condition. May consider splitting the pair.
