  • Antique Primitive Painted Water Bench 19th Century Central Europe

    A primitive antique water bench from Central Europe in a particularly vibrant shade of green. This rather unique piece would have sat in the porch of a rural farmhouse with a pot holding water underneath, hence the asymmetrical appearance of the seat supports, meaning there was no need to remove boots to go back in to the house.

    The neat dimensions of this piece make it extremely versatile in a modern rustic setting and perfect for a hallway or boot room. It is well used with historic strengthening added to the seat back, however it remains a sturdy and functional piece to perch on, with a great space underneath for books, blankets or even boots.

    H89cm (53cm to seat), W143cm, D29cm
