This early bench smacks of the Jacobean style. It is either British or American and it is not so early as Jacobean.  Dating to the mid-19th century, this wonderful bench is folk painted with hunting scenes. It has stags, hounds and running huntsmen with guns, and there are also flowers and a lovely compass rose. The carving is vivacious and the entire bench is the most charismatic piece we've had in a long time. Structurally in great condition. The paint is faded and worn. The top paint has flaking. We have not done a thing to this bench ~ no cleaning, no polishing. It is exactly as it was when we brought it home from the northern stretches of the Adirondack Mountains. A convenient, versatile size at 30" long, 14" deep and 16 1/2" high. And yes, we have sat on it.  And it held us just fine.  Use with confidence. 30” X 13” X 17”
