Pair of Dark Elm Antique Benches
Shanxi, circa 1900
These lovely benches come as a pair, and would be ideal either for extra seating or as narrow side tables next to a sofa. Once used for seating either indoors or outside, they are made from heavy, chunky elm wood and are in a style that is distinctively Chinese. The thick, narrow seats extend over recessed legs in an A frame shape, supported with double stretchers at each end and with a simple apon and spandrels below the seat. The original black lacquer finish is still largely intact, but now worn, particularly on the seat of one of the benches. The wide grain of the elm wood can be seen through the finish and gives real character. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for the two stools.
