Morning Glory Seat

Item #05011

Description:
A cast-iron seat in the “Convulvus” or “Morning Glory” pattern, American, ca. 1880.  33.5 ins. high, 61.5 ins. wide, approximately 26 ins. deep (front to back).

This pattern was first cast by Coalbrookdale around 1855 and was offered in America soon after in 1858 by Wood & Perot.

Barbara says, "Purely Victorian botanical taste with vines entwined almost everywhere—it's a classic example of the exuberance of mid-19th-century taste while celebrating the dexterity of their cast-iron makers".
