A Tuscan neoclassical upholstered carved wood bench from the early 19th century. Coming from an Italian villa in Siena, this bench was built in the 1820s during the elegant neoclassical period. Featuring a tall straight solid upholstered back, the bench is flanked with straight arms supported by two female termes (the caryatid looking characters, whose bodies become pillars instead of legs). The top rail is adorned with delicately carved palmettes and garlands. With its clean lines, old paint and light color palette, this Italian 1820s sofa will bring a wonderful classical elegance to any room.
