Today we are delighted to offer for sale an antique 19th century Victorian cast iron vanity bench! This elegant and exotic piece is finely crafted of cast iron with a polychromed painted finish featuring gilding and coloring which has mellowed to a wonderful time-earned weathered patina. The base of the stool features cast iron side supports in a Baroque style with lion face medallions surmounted by two flame-topped columns, and splayed C-scroll feet. The piece features a twisted bar center stretcher. The seat of the bench is made of wood and features several layers of upholstery; most likely a new fabric was upholstered over the old fabric as fashions changed. The piece is fabulous as-found, with its’ faded grandeur shabby chic look, or can be fully (and easily) restored and re-upholstered to make it look as good as new! Bench presents very well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear, oxidation, and patina commensurate with age and type of use. Upholstered seat is in as-is condition, with tears, holes, and fading. Item sold as-found. Add old-world Victorian elegance and style to any interior with this beautiful bench. Fresh to the market!
