1890’s Victorian School Bench – Desk
1890’s vintage Victorian school bench/desk. Wonderful original school hall bench which converts to a desk. The base is in heavy cast iron made by Edwin Smith of Padiham Lancashire and it retains its original wheels so that one end could be lifted for ease of transport. A simple screw locks the back as either a desk or bench. A wonderful hall bench, the seat and desk are in the original pine and show traces of the original cream paint which has been overpainted burgundy at some stage. Seat Height 43cm.
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.
