Bench with replaced rattan top. This bench, made from Southern Elm, has a well defined waist below the picture frame molded top with a straight stretcher joined to the top with simple vertical struts and decorative carvings. A model of simple refinement in a country bench. Not also the simple carved edge molding around the stretcher and apron. Country? Absolutely, but with a touch of refinement as well. Note the 'waist" between the top and the legs. The stretcher below the waist is dovetailed into the legs and the struts connection the stretcher and the top are well executed.
