~A beautiful antique English oak monk's bench, what a wonderful heirloom for your home and family!~
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A MONK'S BENCH???
~We have only found two of these in the past few years…it is very hard to find them because they often arrive in the U.S. in such disrepair, but this one is beautiful and it is so ornately carved, I cannot imagine it wouldn’t be an excellent choice as a statement piece anywhere in your home!~
~MATCHING STANDING LIONS serve as side arms for the top and command attention with their venerable English style~
~The table top (or bench back) is solid oak with ornately carved cartouche on the bench back AND CARVED DESIGNS on the table top side (BOTH SIDES CARVED, one in a million!)~
~WIDE PANELED CARVED ON BOTH FRONT DOORS AND ON BOTH SIDES, this bench has obvious details & quality construction!~
~Bench seat lifts up for storage access and SURPRISE, there are double doors on the front to access the storage as well (the hinges are so hidden in the carving I didn’t even notice the doors!)~
Not only a statement piece, the bench is one of the most versatile pieces you can imagine…….it easily serves as a bench with the top open……… or as a table with the top closed………not to mention the storage inside the bench…….and with the colorful history of a “monk’s bench”, this is a piece that can truly be in your family for generations to come! Easily blending with any décor, this charming bench could be used in a foyer or den and would be right at home in an office or a game room…….don’t settle for a plain hope chest or toy chest and don’t get a no-frills bench when you can have a monk’s bench instead!!!
