A Victorian style dark oak monks bench comprising of a profusely carved and hinged top/back rest supported on turned front columns. The 'hinged top' can be pulled upwards and rotated to serve as a table top which is supported on the arms of the bench. The seat of the bench has a hinged fielded panel lid surrounded by gadroon edging and opens to reveal ample storage space. The seat sits above four lozenge panels with matching carved side panels. The bench is supported on bracket feet.
The floating carved panels have moved a few mm over the years exposing some unstained oak. This can be remedied by recolouring and is not a big job. There is a split developing in one of the panels (see the pictures). This is a previously used item and so will show some light wear here and there but generally is in very good condition and the frame is totally solid with no movement in the joinery.
