Item 0501 – For bid is a solid wood antique Hand-Carved Wormwood Bench. This 52.5″ tall statement piece really must be inspected closely to admire the unique style. Carved themes include an egg at the top, the acanthus leaf on the back, notches on the arm rests, scrolling on the arm rests, and Lion Heads on the end of the arm rests and middle of the apron. The chest rests on four (4) carved Lion’s feet. Upon lifting the seat, there is a substantial chest with storage area that is 18.6″ deep. There is wear around the Lion’s feet, as well as scratches on the seating surface. Light is visible through the back and it appears it is may have some partial stress cracks, but they do not appear to go all the way through and it is very sturdy. All items noted are clearly visible in the posted pictures. The bench is in good condition considering its antique age and the piece appears to be very sound.
