Seller: lammashireling (95) 100%, Location: Paignton, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 163879430259 A striking fairytale-esque antique settle/ box bench in pine with original hand-painted floral design and vivid blue background with red relief, from Central Eastern Europe- either Transylvania or Hungary, mid to late 19th Century. Known as a 'wedding bench', this piece would have been given to a newly-married couple on their wedding day as was tradition in rural parts. The bench has plenty of rustic character with battle scars here and there. In parts the paint has worn away to reveal a glossy bare pine finish.It has been carefully restored: parts of the blue background have been retouched lightly. There are signs of old cosmetic worm but the bench has been thoroughly treated inside and out. The flower decoration is original. Structurally it's as sound as an ox, and there are no loose arms or spindles etc. Dimensions:Length: 72 inchesHeight: 36 inchesDepth: 18.5 inches I have LOVED this bench- it's been a bit of magic in my kitchen, but I'm selling it due to an impending big move. (I'll be selling other pieces in the next weeks so stay tuned). Material: Pine, Product Type: Settle/bench, Original/Reproduction: Original
