Rendered from the venerable French white oak by master artisans from Brittany, this charming hall bench features a checkerboard seat, elegantly scrolled armrests, and exquisite carved detail on the seatback, apron and cornerpost legs. Barley twist seatback supports and stretchers add an interesting visual aspect. The centerpiece is the fully laden grapevines and the crown above flanked by more grape clusters and dated 1671. Since the piece dates to the 19th century the date carved into the seatback must commemorate a special year in the family history of the vintners that commissioned it some 200 years later...
Circa 1870s.
Measures 50 x 44 x 24; seat height 19.5.
