A Swedish Gustavian Period Neoclassical Bench in an Hourglass Shape, Circa 1780

The gentle curves giving this bench it’s hourglass-like shape are so unusual, they make this piece simply one-of-a-kind! Each tapering leg, with subtle fluting, leads to reeded caps, above which sit a square carving of a flower. The apron features intricate carvings on all sides, punctuated only by the flower carvings of the legs. This comfortable and sturdy bench hails from the north of Sweden, is neoclassical in style and was built during the Gustavian Period, circa 1770-1790. The off-white paint is original, and it retains the old seat board which is re-upholstered in linen and according to traditional methods.
