Rustic Wooden Bench
Shanxi, circa 1850
A simple wooden bench in a rustic style, typical of the benches seen in China outside restaurants or shops. The narrow seat extends over rounded legs in an A-frame shape, which are supported by double stretchers. The apron and spandrels at the top of each leg include some simple moulded edging. The original dark lacquer finish has largely worn away to show the rustic, weathered elm wood underneath, but there are still traces around the apron, adding further character to a charming piece. Great as a little side table next to a sofa or for extra seating.
