Dating to the early years of the 19th century, this impressive hall bench was surely made to last by talented artisans! Using dense, old-growth French white oak they created an overhead canopy braced by buttresses to frame the moorish arches fitted with hangers. Corinthian capitals atop the side columns lead the eye down to the trunk below, carved with quatrefoils within more moorish arches and linenfold motif on the sides. Seat opens to reveal surprising storage.
