LARGE Antique French Carved Dark Oak Entry Hall Bench Gothic Chapel Pew Settle
Antique French Carved Oak Entry Hall Bench Gothic Chapel Pew Settle Trunk
~Direct from France~
~Beautifully carved antique French oak hall bench, in a LARGE 5.5 ft. length, perfect for so many different areas of your home!~
~One of a kind, either originally commissioned for a public chapel or personal chapel for an aristocrat~
~The raised open carved trim across the top perfectly compliments the elaborately carved large panels on the back with gothic tracery, center shields and 4 different designs, perhaps representing the four seasons?~
bench also has 4 similar carved panels, yet all have different designs;
OUTSTANDING quality of these carvings!~
~Each panel has dual bracket “feet” below them, providing perfect symmetry to the design~
~The enclosed raised arms are extremely intriguing, with their “wraparound construction…note the intricately carved sleeping lions on either arm and the hand carved designs down the front posts (I feel like the twin clovers definitely having meaning, I’m just not sure what!)~
~Note both sides have carved design panels, always a sign of quality when the side panels are carved as well as the front~
~SOLID OAK, Heavy and strong, well built by craftsmen of the period~
