About the item: Fine quality antique 18th century Oak settle/bench with void interior under hinged lid, c 1720. This is a quality piece , I think from the carving it is Flemish. The quality of the carving is very good with the front , sides, arms and upper pediment all profusely decorated. The upper pediment has a lovely carved face and there are 6 panels across the front depicting various scenes/ persons in historic dress.
It has aged well with great patina, a real deep colour that only old wood can achieve. Overall condition is good with small areas of historic woodworm (treated anyway) and minor surface wear in line with age and use, but all very much as you would expect from something that is 300 years old. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to view the item.Size: 123 cm tall x 122 cm long x 43 cm deep.
