A very appealing long oak bench with a single plank top edged with a subtle thumbnail moulding, a frieze adorned with continuous nulling in the face and light scalloping beneath, and barley-turned legs.

Solidly constructed, with seven simple stretchers joining the legs together.

Lovely light color with ample evidence of earlier ebonizing.

Dimensions: 48" X 11"; 19" tall

English, ca. 1740
