Up for consideration is a hard to find Antique Cat Bench in near impossible to encounter original paint. The piece stands 21 inches in height by 24 inches long by about 14 inches deep with a seat height of about 16 inches. It has 2 cats facing each other that I have now noticed seem to be on a picket fence... And if you look close you can see some details that you may have never noticed on one of these benches.
It has some fine casting that never really shows up because more often than not someone has painted them over a few times... Or they take them and get them sandblasted instead of stripping the layers of paint. This one is of two black cats with painted shimmery fur approaching each other in caution on a picket fence. Most of the ones I have seem don't have any character they have been spray painted black have some wonderful material slapped on and it's all over a great bench but it is sterile uneventful profane mass produced rubber stamped etc... This one is the one that shows you exactly what they looked like originally and to me that's what is is all about.
Sure it's missing it's upholstery but there is all kinds of great stuff out there that would be the cat's meow... And likely work into your decor or one that goes backs to the roots of what it was supposed to look like. I have had a lot of benches and you can't beat that old Velveteen sort of material that super mellow usually a dark wine colored burgundy. I have even had button and tuck work on some more elaborate pieces.Please take a look at the pictures and if let me know if you have any questions concerns or something to share and if you have one in the original upholstery send me a photo. I would love to see it. Anyways sorry for getting all personal and blabbering on I really don't get that excited about pieces but I just like this one.
