your bench is actually a chest, folk-country style decorations from the early 19 century. I love the horse carvings. It is a quirky item.  Very unusual. Hand-made, and I think the artist who was making it was inspired by Scandinavian folk art because it has a very Scandinavian (Norwegian) style, but I think it is British. I would value it for at least £350 but it can make much more at good auction.
