Primitive Swedish Bench with Trundle
Early rustic bench, Sweden circa 1800, with graceful curved armrests and a hinged seat that tilts up to reveal a storage space. The front of the bench pulls forward to create a larger area that was used as an extra bed. Original paint and original wooden pin to support the seat when it is open. This piece, from a private collection, is an excellent example of the style and ingenuity typical of the best Swedish antiques. It comes with a later custom seat cushion.
