C1890s FRENCH VERNIS MARTIN BOUDOIR BENCH W/ VERSACE FABRIC MEDUSA
This listing is for a circa 1890’s French Vernis Martin boudoir bench with Versace ‘Medusa’ fabric. The bench measures 31 ½ inches (80 cm) high at the sides, and is 27 ½ inches (70 cm) wide at the front.
The bench features splayed wood legs with carved acanthus leaf decorations on the feet in gold. On both sides of the bench are hand painted roundels.

The bench has been reupholstered with a beautiful buttery yellow Versace fabric with the Medusa pattern on it and gold rope trim.
It is in very good condition; with the exception of age appropriate wear to the roundels on the sides of the bench which have wear to the surface. Please see the many photographs for more on the look and condition.
