Rustic Folk Art Bench from Sweden
Height : 47 cm
Length : 188 cm
Width : 31 cm
Rustic folk art bench from Sweden made during the early 19th century. The bench is made in Swedish pine which is a particularly dense and hardwearing material due to the cold climate in Sweden which makes the pine grow slower. The legs on this bench are painted while the seat has never been painted and is wood bare. The pine has the genuine warm patina of time which can only be achieved by time and use.
The bench has a dating, 1819, and initials carved into the underside – see picture. The construction of the bench is very simple with a single board making up the seat and four legs wedged into place. The bench is charming in its simplicity and the patina and rustic surface set it apart from any modern equivalents.
