ANTIQUE INDUSTRIAL CAST IRON AND PINE TABLE
An unusual and unique industrial table, rescued from a 200 year old foundry in Yorkshire.

The characterful and rugged 2 3/4 inch thick three planked top is surely the original one.
The sturdy cast iron legs / ends are set in 16" from the end of the table and 43" apart from each other, braced by 1 1/2" steel bars. A middle brace is set 7 1/2" from the floor and the curved bars have a 9" radius.
The base has been cleaned but left in original unpainted condition. The pine top has been cleaned and waxed.
A useful and unique table , a one of a kind piece.

ANTIQUE PINE BANK OF DRAWERS / WORK BENCH
A massively chunky Victorian chest of drawers or side board, found in a local cotton mill , where it was used in the workshops.
Constructed to survive heavy use, with strong dove tailed drawers , made from thicker than normal pine and a frame to match.
The two planked top must have been nearly 3" thick, but has been worn to various thicknesses.
In fact all parts of the chest are smoothed to a very tactile undulating surface which gives the piece it's unique charm.
The back which is part of the frame construction holds a very endearing wonky shelf.
All drawer handles are intact and the drawers run smoothly.
Surely another one like this cannot be found easily!
