This is a fine antique English mud 18th century Georgian oak settle, from the George II period, circa 1750, comprising four panels, which measures 5ft wide, boasts a stunning colour and is in excellent original condition. The Georgian oak settle comprises a mid-height back, with a moulded top rail and two triangular finials with four fielded panels below, interspersed by moulded rails and stiles. The sturdy down-swept arms are secured by shaped vertical supports to a solid two panel oak seat, with a straight frieze below. The oak bench stands on primitive block feet to the front and rear, all of which are united by bar stretchers, for additional strength. The Georgian oak settle frame has been constructed in the traditional manner with pegged and joined construction. It is unusual to see early mid 18th century oak settle of this size, in such excellent original condition – this makes it highly desirable.
The Georgian wooden bench boasts a rich dark-brown period oxblood colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour, depth and patination this can only be achieved through the age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
This Georgian oak settle would look superb in a variety of rooms from the hallway or kitchen, in either a traditional or contemporary setting. This oak bench would certainly grace any home and a great investment, as it’s an extremely functional item.
