Romanian Hungarian Antique Painted Storage Bench, circa 1880
The lovely symmetry and hand-painted faux finish on this antique Romanian Hungarian bench, circa 1880 remains as handsome today as when it was first created. The bench has an architectural inspiration with its solid base and open column pattern that surrounds the seat. Please be sure to use the enlarge and zoom functions to see the hand-painted details of the pattern of the faux paint used to resemble much fancier timber than the pine underneath the surface. The wear that exists from actual daily use is entirely random and adds a dimension to the visual effect of the bench impossible to achieve with new paint. The seat of the bench raises on its original iron hinges to reveal an enclosed storage space. While the original lock remains the key has traveled somewhere else. This bench was always placed closest to the front door where wet outerwear could be easily shed and as such was used quite frequently. Now the bench possesses an almost sculptural presence and will be striking viewed from the front or either side. It may be placed in a protected outdoor area or anywhere inside a home to great effect.
