An exceptional early antique monastic oak bench seat chair circa 1630. Fabulous quality with turned onion feet, reeded cross stretcher, carved decorative back with scalloped slats, flat board seat & square peg & tenon joints • All original in sleepy condition, untouched from the day it was produced. Fabulous primitive look with deep mellow patina from over 400 years of use. Smooth and tactile to touch. Stunning rare example. Faint carved engraved lettering to top rear back splat with letters MC. We love this piece of statement furniture and have it currently in our own collection. Waxed and ready to be used in the home for another 100 years.
As a genuine antique there is wear and use commensurate with age. Some wooden products may have signs of historic woodworm. As a precaution we apply a clear triple action woodworm treatment that also kills wet rot, dry rot and woodworm.
