Description

A totally original antique country settle with box storage , still in its very first paint work.
This settle has a very pleasing style with wavy love heart paneled back and elegantly swept arm rest.
The construction on this bench is particularly good,also the quality and thickness of the timber, ie this is a heavy bench. The backrest is nearly 1 1/2" thick!
Added bonus is found in the big storage area below the sturdy lid. Even the original leg pads are still(mostly) intact.
The paint work has to be mentioned, all original, a traditional style called Vinegar Painting, executed 150 years ago, around 1860. Undamaged and rarely found in this condition.
The settle has no structural damage and only minor wear to the paint work.
Although it would be a shame , this bench can of course be stripped back to the natural pine and wax polished or painted to order.
Needless to say that benches like this are a one-of-a kind find.
Dimensions: 75" 1905mm long
39" 990mm high
21" 534mm deep
19" 483mm seat height
