A handsome pair of Continental early 19th century Neo-Classical st. walnut, ebonized fruitwood and ormolu mounted benches. The pair are raised by pawed feet below two square tapering 'S' shaped supports creating an 'X' design. The center of the 'X' is decorated by an ormolu rosette. The two supports are joined by a turned walnut stretcher. The straight frieze is below the black leather upholstered top finished with French natural nails.
