Carved Antique Walnut Wood Renaissance Style Bench from Italy, 19th Century

This is a beautifully carved walnut wood Italian bench with padded silk patterned fabric. It dates to the 19th Century and most recently belonged to Warner Brothers Studio Collection in California. The carving is meticulous with the benches’ legs surrounding escutcheons at either end. Notice, the carving is double sided throughout the entire bench. The legs and feet are in the form of mythological griffins. The shields on the escutcheons have chevrons on them, and there is a well carved stretcher between the two ends.  At the center is a smiling mascaron with a crown of beading. Flanking this are scrolling acanthus leaves.

CONDITION:  Very good condition with minor losses to motifs and old restorations.
