Arts & Crafts Movement Settee

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Deaccessioned from a Masonic Temple, a massive American Arts & Crafts movement settee or long hall bench. Stylistically, through comparison to other known early samples, it appears to have been made by a Woodstock area craftsman predating the 1902 establishment of the Byrdcliffe Colony. The framing is thought to be mixed fruitwoods, including cherrywood and possibly some applewood; in keeping with the locale to which it is attributed. May be used freestanding in a room; finished and attractive even when viewed from behind.
