Date: Circa 1900
Price: Please contact us for price
Description: The design of these benches is a beautiful naturalistic interpretation of the Passion Flower Vine, with a curved back entwined with flowers and leaves and bird head arm terminals. This is a rare pattern and this rare pair of benches is cast in zinc which toward the end of the 19th century the iron foundries were using in preference to cast iron. Somewhat lighter than cast iron, zinc does not rust so is advantageous to use in a coastal environment. These would be beautiful in any garden setting. They have been professionally cleaned of many layers of old paint and painted white. 31 inches high, 39 inches wide and 30 inches deep. Sold as a pair.
