A very good looking and well made hand sawn pair of trestle benches, these were designed for a providential refectory able and are absolutely sublime. The timber is fruitwood which was substantially more expensive than oak and pine, its harder wearing and lasts generations. Being such long single planks of the wood the timber has twisted over the centuries, the benches have old repairs to correct the movement under the feet and they are good and solid to sit on. We have cleaned waxed and polished them from top to bottom, there are normal patina marks here and there, old repairs as mentioned, they are lovely to touch and sit on. Depth:- 18cm top only, 35cm at the feet.
