From Italy, this charming limestone garden bench has been hand-carved out of Vicenza limestone. The grey colored stone has nice been nicely weathered, leading to white, dark grey and black patinas showing.
The bench seat has a recessed molding adorned with egg and dart motif along the sides and acanthus leaves on the corners. It rests upon two volute shaped legs with acanthus leaf embellishment. The front and back side of the legs each have a monopodial paw with horizontal fluting that sit on top of a rectangular plinth. The sides of each leg have a shield-shaped medallion with similar fluting.
Made from three separate stone pieces (the seat and two legs), you can add mortar for stability. This Vicenza stone garden bench would look fantastic in any outdoor setting.
CONDITION: Very good condition. Intentionally distressed with minor nicks and wear.
