A nice, and rare, example of a nineteenth century cast iron bench in the gothic style. This design was manufactured by the Val d'Osne foundry in France and Coalbrookdale in England, and, though not easily found, in the US. This example is from a Philadelphia estate and the casting is so much finer than with 20th century reproductions. 33" high by 39" wide by 23" deep/ repainted in dark green. Some old repairs but in very good condition.
