A pair of English neoclassical style benches from the mid-20th century, with ebonized wood, gilt and painted accents, Greek key frieze and new upholstery. Each of this exquisite pair of English benches features two graceful out-scrolled arms, adorned with elegant gilded scenes inspired by the Greco-Roman antiquity and painted on a red ground. These two arms are flanking a rectangular seat presenting a new custom-made linen-covered cushion. The delicate movement of the arms is gently leading our attention to the skirt, adorned with a classical Greek key frieze standing out beautifully on the red ground. Each bench is raised on four scrolling legs, decorated with cornucopias, symbols of abundance. The entire structure, made of ebonized wood, presents exquisite contrasts with the red and gold accentations. With their lovely silhouettes and refined décor, this pair of English Neoclassical style benches will bring a stylish presence to any room, from a living room to a bedroom. Each seat is 17 inches high with its cushion.
