EUGÈNE PRINTZ | BENCH
lacquered wood, fabric upholstery
18 x 49⅜ x 15⅜ in. (45.7 x 125.4 x 39.1 cm)
Overall in very good condition. Bench has been sensitively and professional reupholstered in keeping with the integrity of the original design. Wood surfaces present with scattered scratches, acresions, and indentations concentrated to the legs and feet of the piece and consistent with age and use. Some very minor flecks of paint loss concentrated to the edges of the piece and only visible upon close inspection. One foot with some accumulated wax build-up surrounding one foot. An elegant and classical bench by Printz.
