English 19th Century Long Ebony Upholstered Bench
Dimensions: 18 3/4″H x 58 1/2″W x 16 1/2″D
A newly upholstered bench from the end of the 19th century, England. This long, ebony bench is upholstered in a rough, woven linen with natural fibers and is affixed to the frame using antiqued metal nail heads. The bench is lifted on six turned and tapered legs that have reeded accents. The ebonized hardwood frame is beginning to show its age, with some of the natural wood starting to show through the ebony finish. Placed at the end of the bed, this bench will provide a perfect landing spot to stop and take off your shoes after a long day (or night). c.1890s.
