Rendered from solid Spanish red oak, this elaborately carved hall bench pays homage to the Conquistadors and native Americans alike, with their representations appearing on the seatback surrounded by elaborate and stylized urn, floral and foliate motifs. Complementary carving on the front of the trunk seat below also includes dolphins, behind which is surprising storage accessed by raising the seat.
Circa 1870s.
Measures 56 x 50 x 21; seat height 19.
