Description
A Chinese low bench with the seat made from a beautifully worn and weathered single piece of timber. While maybe a little low to use as a seat (unless for children) this would make a beautiful coffee table or maybe a table to display pottery etc… I love this - the wood is absolutely gorgeous. It has maybe spent some of its life outside to acquire the wear and splits it has now. We are not sure exactly what the wood is, but think it is most likely elm. It has simple trestle type legs, at least one of which is made from newer timber. The seat measures 129.5cm long by 29cm wide.

condition

Lots of wear and character as you can see from the photos, but sound with no wobbles or movement in the legs. As mentioned above, one leg appears to a replacement. I think the other legs are original, but the stretchers may have been replaced. One leg has a repair where a piece of timber has been spliced in.
