Can help me with any details about the attached gossip bench. I know nothing about it. I have done some research but can not find another bench similar on the web to compare it to. I would be interested in any details, such as age, maker, value. I am happy to send more photos. Thanks in advance.

Hi Kim,

There is not too much I can tell you about this piece of furniture, except I
belive it was recently made in some third world country, where most of the vulgar
furniture has been coming from these days.

As to the value, it is worthless to anyone who knows fine furniture, so it is worth
what somebody with little knowledge is willing to pay for it and that is very little.

Personally, I would not accept it as a gift.

Good luck with it.
