1890’s Mill Bench
We were recently contacted about the clearance of an old textile mill West of Leeds, the mill had stopped working as a textile mill many years ago and was refurbishing electronic components. Hidden at the back of one of the workshops we found a group of the original mill equipment, workbenches, storage boxes and so on. Given their age everything was in pretty good condition so we have simply given them a gentle clean to bring out the original colour. All the lines are listed so make sure you have a look at everything from this haul. The mill benches are the ‘piece de resistance’, weighing nearly 100kg, they have solid cast iron legs and wonderful orignal pine worktops. Perfect as the real deal console table or even as a rather heavy duty potting table. The overall height is 172 including the 24cm upstand.
Our workshop team inspect every product and carry out any needed repairs to ensure that everything leaves us serviced and maintained ready for many more years of life. All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use and we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
