Topiary Bench (1997)
Made by Richard Schultz Design
Listed for sale is an exceptionally rare and unusual outdoor Richard Schultz topiary bench. This example has been consigned by the original owners and retains fantastic provenance. The father of the consigner purchased these pieces directly from Richard Schultz in 1997, along with a set of topiary dining chairs and dining table. The bench is thus accompanied by a letter from Richard to the original owner, along with advertisements and material samples for other Richard Schultz pieces. What is particularly unique about this bench is that it has a natural aluminum finish, not a painted finish. This was custom-ordered from Schultz. Both this and the dining set lived in East Hampton since 1997. The bench measures 55 inches wide by 26 inches deep and 34.5 inches tall.
