This long Nordic empire style hall bench has parcel gilt stylised capitol decoration to the uprights, arms and legs, the top rail above a twin lattice panel back and drop in seat, the open arms above turned tapered legs, rear legs out-swept. The Nordic antique furniture of the empire takes on monumental proportions. Antique Nordic furniture of the empire period is particularly hard to find and much copied.
Late 19th Century. Seat height: 50cm
