E-mail a Friend: GOTHIC CAST IRON BENCH OR SETTEE, 46 in wide

This "Gothic" pattern cast iron bench or settee design was patented in 1846 by the Carron Foundry of Scotland and was copied by many American foundries and patented in the U.S. in 1848. The Gothic name comes from the arch design of the back. It is often called the "Rose Garden" pattern since it has been used in the White House Rose Garden and on the White House grounds since the 1850's. This bench had multiple layers of old weathered paint and now has been professionally cleaned and repainted. It dates late 19th century or very early 20th century. It measures 36 inches high, 46 inches wide and 20 inches deep.
