This is one of the earliest Russian-style furniture items in the museum. In 1870-s the interest to Russian cultural heritage started to rise, and attempts to preserve and restore medieval architectural monuments were made for the first time. Such projects were, in particular, carried out by the famous architect, artist, and historian F.G. Solntsev. In order to restore the interiors of ancient chambers he designed furniture items decorated with ornamental patterns from ancient Russian and Byzantine chronicles. This small bench is one of such items.
