Following the success of Sid Grauman's previous movie palaces in Los Angeles, he traveled throughout Europe and Asia searching for inspiration for the perfect style for his next ultimate theatre. After falling in love with the beauty and grandeur of Chinese architecture, Grauman knew he'd found the next theme for his Hollywood palace - Grauman's Chinese Theatre. These two Chinese themed benches date back to the opening of the Chinese Theatre in 1927, and were featured in the elegant downstairs ladies lounge until the mid 90s. Includes: (1) Bench measuring 85 x 17.5 in. wide x 18 in. tall with panel seat and Chinese scrollwork on the edge. The wood is stained and heavily worn. The scrollwork on each end is damaged and (1) Bench frame measuring 71 x 17 in. wide x 18 in. tall with no seat and broken middle slat. Both benches in vintage poor to fair condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
