20TH CENTURY ANTIQUE ARTS & CRAFTS / MISSION OAK BENCH ~ 6.5 FEET
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
Bay Colony Antiques is thrilled to offer for sale this fantastic 20th century antique Arts & Crafts / Mission Oak hall bench. We’ve handled some great mission oak benches lately but none on this scale. This is a heavy duty bench made from solid oak and quarter sawn or tiger oak. The bench has large paddle arms and a 12 slat back. The leather seat is very comfortable and has some age as you can see by the springs and stuffing. The bench is in wonderful condition with our only notes being 2 small white paint marks on the seat and a missing base stretcher. Even without the base stretcher the bench is solid as a rock and generously overbuilt. We can either have our woodworker plug the stretcher holes and it’ll look like it was never there, or we can have him fabricate a new rail and have it color matched. We're happy to preform either service free of charge depending on what our end client wants. It doesn't look bad aesthetically without the stretcher and it gives you more opportunity to store things underneath the bench. The bench measures 78 1/2” wide x 22 1/2” deep x 37 3/4” tall. The seat alone measures 67 1/2” wide between the arms x 17 1/2” deep with a seat height of 20”.
