Seller: trrugs (68) 0%, Location: Grafton, Wisconsin, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 283795606780 English Tall Back, Two Seat Bench with Paneled Box Base in the 17th Century Italian Style. This finely constructed oak ecclesiastical bench has two cross shaped panels in the back, each carved with a neo classic urn and acanthus leaf motif. Each panel is surmounted by a shell and above the entire back are a pair of griffins guarding a wreath with a crowned cross. The arm rests are supported by carved cherubs resting on acanthus scrolls. The finish is original and in very good condition. One note on the shell panel. You will see a relief cut that was purposely made by the original artist. It was done to prevent the wood from cracking given the natural expansion and contract cycles of wood. It is done on both shells. In the picture, you have have the impression it is "cracked", but if you look closely, you will see it is a perfect cut and allows the wood to naturally move. Behind the sturdy oak backing is the signature of the artist and is dated 6/24/10. All Dimensions are approximate: 59" wide by 91" tall by 23" deep. Solid oak construction, very sturdy. Appraised by Eron Johnson Antiques, LTD in Denver for $11,500.00 There is a small piece of molding that is missing on the very bottom - see photo for more detail.
