This early bench smacks of the Jacobean style. It is either British or American but not quite so early as Jacobean, dating to c1870s. The wood 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 somewhat 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 sat on it. With confidence. 30” X 13” X 17”
