Totally original antique wooden hall bench. Used to be super posh, according to Dutch standards. Upholstered in one of the most extensive and durable fabrics available at the time; Velours d' Utrecht. Famous for his indestructible quality. Is still in production but a lot less popular nowadays. 

 

And velours d' Utrecht was that expensive at the time, that a wise Dutch lady, did not feel it necessary to upholster the back of the bench in this fabric, since the back would only face the wall and no one would see it. It would be a total waste of money, so she opted to have a simple cotton fabric on the back. 

 

Bench is in its original state but has in the past 120 years that it was in the hall at it's previous family (because yes, it has been in the same family home for the past 120 years), it did sustain some damage. The veneer is cracked is places and it has some scratches all around. 

 

But you can still sit on it in every which way you want, it is solid as a rock and equally heavy. A good and typical example of Dutch Solidity. And I think that is lovely. 

 

Dimensions: back height 93 cm, width 143 cm, deep 76 cm, seating height 42 cm, seating depth 58 cm.
