This bench was purchased at an estate auction in Illinois. So far my research shows that it is "Four Seasons" design registered in England on April 5, 1870. This design was also manufactured and retailed in the 19th century in U.S.
We were able to dismantle the bench for transport - no way could my husband and I lift it whole. This item is bolted together.
The wooden seat show is my own replacement but it came w/three slats of similar size wood that had been painted.
I do not know how to tell if it is original or reproduction. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
