Swedish White Gustavian Bench With Storage, circa 1810-30

This lovely bench is a wonderful example of Swedish Gustavian craftsmanship with delicately carved faces, leaves, trim and medallions seen best in the close up photos. 
Turned finials and tapered fluted legs add to the timeless appeal and style.
The original white painted finish has been gently distressed through generations of use, adding to the aged grace of this bench.
Please note the current foam seat is simply covered in linen fabric to show what this bench may look like when properly upholstered (The simple fabric and foam will be included with purchase).
See photo that shows the plank seat is removeable vs. hinged as this bench originally served as a type of spare trundle bed; can now be used for hidden storage.
This bench has been restored and is solid/stable; any nicks, scratches, distress and signs of wear are commensurate with age and do not impact the function nor beauty of this lovely Gustavian bench.  
Please refer to professional photos for clear understanding of color, condition and details; photo lighting, individual monitor display and home lighting may all impact how item is viewed.
Seat Height: 19.25" to wood bench/21.5" to current foam seat
