DESCRIPTION: This early to mid 19th c. high-back pine bucket-bench, or cupboard, is a graceful and highly unusual piece of American country & primitive furniture. With shaker-like sensibility, this utilitarian piece would have been at home in the foyer where you could sit while taking off snowy boots, or in the kitchen used as storage for crocks of grain and other staples, or on the covered porch by the entry where you could place groceries or packages while opening the front door.
This bucket bench was created with graceful, curving sides enclosing two drawers at the top, a mid-height narrow shelf, and a bench with a two-door storage compartment beneath, all supported on attractive, carved bracket feet. CONDITION: Age appropriate wear, scratches and stains; both top drawers have “old damage” slivers of wood missing on the front top left corners (see photos). DIMENSIONS: 42" wide x 18" deep x 5' high.
