bench detail  fireplace bench full size

I am always getting request for fireplace benches. Fortunately, I ran onto this beautifully carved Louis XV style example from the mid 1700s. The cushion and fabric aspect of it has been removed to accommodate a most wonderful later top of “beef slab” red marble. Please note the excellent carving and scrolling of the leafage along the apron, as well as upon the cabriole legs. Use as I found it for the most elegant coffee table that you might find, or remove the marble and upholster the top as a fireside bench. In any case, this will be a most elegant place to display books and magazines.

Height 16 inches, length 55 inches, width 28 inches,. The marble slab measures approximately 54“ x 26“.

Very hard to find and priced properly at $1475.
