A replica of one of the rarer forms of simple 17th century seating furniture, this long bench, or “form”, has the canted legs of the period joint stool but a medial stretcher joining and stabilizing the two ends.

The apron is carved with nulling on all sides, the legs are chamfered with lambs’ tongues, and the single-board seat is softened with a thumbnail moulding around its perimeter.

Tight and solid, with full original height.

English, ca. 1900

Top: 42 ½” X 9 ½”; Height: 19”
