This beautiful garden bench consists of 10 limestone pieces that have been hand-carved by a skilled Italian stone mason. The sinuously shaped back has volute scroll elements with two fleur de lys points flanking a central scalloped shell finial. There is a vertical margent of a grape cluster on the pilaster beneath the shell.
On each end of the bench is C-scroll shaped arm adorned with a pair of volutes. Below are three similarly carved legs whose volutes are arranged as S-scrolls. All the arms and legs sit on thick rectangular plinths. A repeating cabochon motif embellishes the quarter molding of the seat edge. The spacious seat has been designed with a curve and can comfortably sit at least five adults. Our Italian limestone garden bench with fleur de lys, scrolls and grape clusters would make a grand statement if placed in a garden. It would also look fantastic in an interior courtyard.
CONDITION: Very good condition with small chip to front left seat and other minor rubs and nicks to stone. Please see photos.
