This bench from Chester, England has a remarkable design dated "1672" and scenes of bridges and city gates, carved of solid oak about 1870. Remarkably detailed sculpting is three dimensional on this antique furniture, including raised panels, griffins and spiral columns.
The deep original finish has been waxed and buffed, so all that is needed to maintain its warm patina is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth.
There is storage under the seat. Chester is an ancient town founded by the Romans near the border with Wales.
Dimensions are 54" long, 24" deep, 45" tall and the seat is 19" high.
