Victorian Wood and Iron Reversible Railway BenchAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
Add some Industrial style to your interior or exterior design concept with this Victorian iron and wood reversible railroad bench. This Machine Age piece features a rotating mechanism that allows the spindled back of this bench to be switched from the back of the bench to the front. Once used on railway platforms at train stations, the bench back was pivoted from one side to the other depending on which way the train was coming from, allowing patrons to sit and wait either side for their train. The back has cast iron mounts and can be switched easily over the top of the bench.
The sturdy Industrial Design makes this table Apt for a number of locations and uses and can be part of a living room, den, office, games room, hallway, veranda, covered patio or sunroom. It would also add interest in a hospitality or corporate location, such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office, meeting room, outside patio, beer garden or in a clothing emporium.
