Hello Delia:
I added several pictures of the bottom of the benches. I hope this helps. I have little idea about their age. The design has a mid-century feel. The handwork under the cushion is perfect.

Hello Delia:
Do you have an idea as to where these were made? U.S.?
Thank you...

Hi Rhonda,
Hard to pinpoint exactly - this form was popular in the United States, England, France and Italy...less so in other areas of the Continent. Sorry I can't be more specific but I've changed the description to say "American or European".
