Product description

The Chinese Antique Elm Bench Shanxi circa 1900 shows traces of the original dark lacquer finish from circa 1900 bench are still visible around the top of the legs where they fit through carved spandrels, but the finish has largely worn away on the top surface and legs to show the natural, pale elm wood underneath.

The bench is in a classic Chinese style, with splayed legs, supported by double stretchers, fitting directly into an overhanging thick seat. The four tenon ends where the legs fit through the seat are visible on the top surface, indicating the accurate joinery used in even a simple item of furniture like this.

Originally used for indoor or outdoor seating, benches like this were often seen outside shops or other small businesses in China.
