This is a massive and heavy pine box bench or settle, built from stock over one inch thick.  The scalloped back rail caps a gallery formed by a shapely centre stile with two clusters of embedded diamond shapes flanking a turned full baluster on each side.  This cluster appears again on the sides, beneath the high scrolled arms.  The seat, braced for strength with two cross members dovetailed into the underside, lifts on original iron flap hinges to reveal a generous storage well within.  This space is divided into two unequal compartments, the sturdy divider providing additional support for the seat.

This piece is under many coats of paint.  Most recently, though decades ago, oxblood, over at least two shades of green and one blue, all worn and crackled together.  In areas where the later coats are completely gone, one can see traces of an original, stylised grain paint, typical of the period.  This is a great piece for a lobby or mudroom, a restaurant waiting area, or anywhere you wish to combine informal seating with convenient storage.
