The bench is raised by circular tapered fluted legs with acanthus leaf carved feet and decoratively carved block rosette reserves. The straight apron displays a richly carved Coeur de Rai mottled band. Each armrest displays an elegant lyre shape pierced turned design. All original patinated finish throughout.
