Exceptional Early English Marble Bench from Oprah Winfrey's Private Collection
This impeccable hand-carved marble bench dates to the early 19th century and was acquired from Oprah Winfrey's private collection at her Montecito, CA home. Stunning, crisp carving includes thistles and acanthus leaf decoration to the supports and egg and dart carving to the four edges of the bench top. Superb condition with one tiny and old weathered chip to one corner of the top. One support is slightly smaller than the other, but this doesn't impact the look or value in any way. Purchased by Oprah from Mallet's auction house for more than $35,000 several years ago.
England, CA 1810.
