name
  Monumental art deco wooden bench.
description
  What a great design this monumental wooden bench is. Came out of the townhall of Leiden (Holland). Stood there for years and years in the basement. Most likely it was used as a "wainting" bench in the hallway of this townhall. It is designed in the Amsterdamse School style. Sober and yet monumental enough to do right to its surroundings. The black lacquered feet are giving the impression of two padestals. This bench is totally build up out of solid oak. The big seating part has a slight hollowing downwards which is made for a little seating comfort. All sides of the seating have soft roundings. It is made very heavy and therefor will not move easely. It could have been designed by Hildo Krop (researching that). This bench is in a unrestored condition so there are traces of usage and wear and tear. Dimensions: L175 x D55 x H 44 cm. Year: about 1910. Origin: Dutch.
