Natural Elm Shanxi Bench
Shanxi, circa 1870
Almost certainly lacquered when it was produced, this antique bench now shows the natural colour of the elm wood, with a weathered, rustic character on the seat. The splayed, rounded A-frame legs fit directly into the overhanging seat, supported by double stretchers. At the top of each leg is a beautifully carved cloud spandrel in a floral pattern. The bench is nicely sized for different uses - perhaps as a window seat or at the end of a bed.
