Description

A useful, well built and decorative farmhouse box settle, in Farrow and Ball 'Strong White' paint finish.
Continental origin, country style, about 1850.
Particularly small with boldly swept arms, a solid panelled back and arm rests.
The bench has some lovely detail, especially the worn timber seat and scrolled edge.
The paintwork is rustic, quite distressed, the 'Strong White' rubbed back to a darker back ground.
The construction is sturdy and the lidded seat offers a huge stow space.
The bench has been cleaned inside, some old divisions have been removed and is ready for use.
There is a fair amount of old worm holes in the floor boards, but the timber is solid and has been thoroughly and effectively treated.
This bench is an original antique bench, but due to so many requests for a smaller version, it has been shortened to this size. During rebuilding new parts have to be added, in this case the left front and back leg.

55" 1400mm wide
39 1/4" 997mm high
21 1/2" 550mm deep
18 1/2" 470mm seat height
