This is an antique wooden bench. We are told these came from a monastery where the monk sat abreast the stool and the initiate sat opposite and was taught the ways of monks! At time of listing we had two of these available in slightly different sizes.

Makers mark / hallmarks: none
Sourced: in France
Origin: France
Age: circa 1900’s
Materials: wood, metal
Size roughly: 30.5 x 19.5 x 8.5 inches
Weight unpacked roughly: 7 kg, so expensive to send internationally I am afraid
Condition: in used vintage condition with signs of previous use, some knocks and scratches, extensive signs of long gone woodworm (now dry stored, but may benefit from treating), wobbles very slightly when sitting on it suggesting a little play in the joints from decades of use but still stable and strong for sitting
Highlights: conversation piece
