Late 17th century Oak joined long dining table. A 2 plank top with cleated ends is located on the base with bearers, but is not fixed, making it easy to be moved. 6 turned legs supports the length of the table. The original long outside rails have been taken away, to allow for the use of chairs instead of benches, replaced with a central long rail for strength. A good antique oak period dining table, showing the scars of time but with the handsome solidity of 17th century oak furniture. Circa 1680
A pretty pair of 19th century French trestle end benches. Made from cherrywood, they are smooth, with a great waxed surface. The trestle ends are shaped. Well constructed, the benches are sturdy and glow with the honey tones of antique cherrywood. Circa 1880
19th century garden/park bench, the iron strapwork used to great effect in creating a comfortable seat. With a gently curved seat and back, and scrolled arm ends, it is an elegant model of the Victorian outdoor bench. It has been indoors for much of its life, as it is in remarkably good condition the painted surface can either be enjoyed with its slight deterioration or re-painted. Circa 1890.
Pair of late 19th century unusually decorative French cherrywood benches. Well crafted, they feature shaped trestle ends set into sledge feet, securely tenoned into the tops. The plank tops have shaped ends that compliment the trestles. This most attractive pair of antique benches are in lovely condition with a clean smooth surface and golden cherrywood colour. Circa 1890.
A rare chance to enjoy the Victorian park/garden bench with this sturdy, well preserved example. The scrolled metal frame is in excellent condition. The wooden slats are all replaced, following the identical design of the original slats. Painted green, this is an iconic reminder of summer, an enhancement to any open space.
