HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY LISTING, PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION,STUDY THE MANY MANY PICTURES FROM ALL ANGLES AND ASK QUESTIONS TO UNDERSTAND THE ITEM ON OFFER AND THE TERMS.

WHAT I HAVE ON SALE IS A STUNNING OLD SCHOOL BENCH/CHURCH PEW.

THIS ORIGINATED FROM A WELSH CHURCH/ SCHOOL WITH ITS HISTORY DATING BACK TO 1860,THIS BENCH IS AROUND THIS DATE, MAYBE A LITTLE LATER.IT IS CONSTRUCTED FROM SOLID PINE WITH  ELEMENTS OF PITCH PINE.IT IS DEEP STAMPED UNDERNEATH EYTON(WHICH IS THE SCHOOL/CHURCH IT CAME FROM)FIRSTLY IT WAS PROFESSIONALLY DIPPED IN A TANK TO REMOVE THE OLD FINISHES(IT WAS PAINTED BROWN),THEN WOODWORM TREATED AND DRIED.SANDED VERY SMOOTH WHILE TRYING TO RETAIN ITS HISTORIC MARKS, THEN PINNED, GLUED AND REPAIRED WHERE NEEDED.

PAINTED IN PRIMER,THEN FINISHED IN FARROW AND BALL ESTATE EGGSHELL FRENCH GRAY NO 18(WHICH IS  A GREENISH COLOUR SEE PIC 12 FOR CLOSE UP)AND THE PAINT SANDED BACK TO THE BARE WOOD/UNDERCOAT IN VARIOUS PLACES(IN PARTICULAR THE HOLES ON THE SIDES AND FEET) AND DISTRESSED, FINALLY WAXED IN ANTIQUE BROWN PINE WAX ALL OVER.

I HAVE USED WAXES TO ADD TO THE WEATHERED LOOK,I HAVE THEN BUFFED IT TO A SUBTLE SHEEN,EVEN UNDERNEATH HAS BEEN PAINTED AND WAXED,AGAIN SEE PICTURES.

A NICE SIZE AND SIZED IN INCHES AS FOLLOWS    54 1/2 INCHES LONG,12 INCHES DEEP,21 INCHES HIGH.

THIS WAS OBVIOUSLY A MUCH LONGER BENCH,I HAVE USED THE ENDS OF THE BENCH TO MAKE THE LEGS AND HAVE MADE HOLES IN THE LEGS AND SIDE PELMET TO GIVE IT A "PORTHOLE" LOOK,THE BENCH IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM WAS DAMAGED HENCE THE REWORKING.

THIS IS A VERY RUSTIC AND OLD ITEM,PLEASE BEAR THAT IN MIND (ALSO THE CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE TO IT)

 

THIS IS VERY VERY OLD AND AS SUCH CARRIES THE MARKS OF ITS INTERESTING HISTORY,DEEP MARKS CUTS,SCRATCHES,CHIPS ETC,ONE OF THE INNER LEGS HAS THE WORD "TON" EMBOSSED IN IT AS THE E AND Y HAVE BEEN OMMITED BY THE HOLE(EYTON CHURCH/SCHOOL REMEMBER).THE BENCH IS FINISHED AND DESIGNED TO BE WEATHERED AND IT IS,A BEACH HUT FEEL IF YOU LIKE,THE WAX HAS FILLED THE HOLES AND GIVEN IT AN OLD PAINTED BOAT HULL LOOK.

FINISHED TODAY AFTER HOURS OF WORK AND MATERIALS ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS FIND A PLACE FOR IT IN YOUR HEART AND YOUR HOME.

(AN ITEM LIKE THIS, BUT NON ORIGINAL, IN A SHABBY CHIC SHOP WOULD BE A FORTUNE,AND BE MDF, SO THIS HAS TO BE A BETTER CHOICE.)ONLY BENCH FOR SALE,NOTHING ELSE IN PICS INCLUDED,THIS REALLY IS A LOVELY LITTLE ITEM.

I THINK THAT HAS COVERED IT,ITEM IS LOCATED NEAR LICHFIELD AT PRESENT OR COLLECTION NEAR JUNCTION 16 M6, 2 MINUTES.VIEWING NEAR LICHFIELD POSSIBLE AS THIS IS SUCH A QURKY ITEM,THE PICTURES DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE.

CASH ON COLLECTION ONLY PLEASE IS THE METHOD.

I WILL BE LISTING MORE BENCHES AS I RESTORE THEM,ALL VICTORIAN,SOME WAXED,SOME PAINTED,SOME A MIXTURE OF BOTH,ALL WILL BE RESTORED AND DIPPED PRIOR TO SALE. HAPPY BIDDING PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS.
