Except for the reeded iron an exact copy of an original English Regency garden bench ca 1820. It is a little larger than the original too, making it a very functional choice for the contemporary garden - as well as being a wonderful piece of sculpture. Expert hand wrought scrolling work joined, as it was in the original, by metal bars and rivets. It is 60" wide but 42" high by 26" deep. It has been rust proofed and re-painted in white enamel paint. In excellent condition.
