Here is an example of a very good quality antique Welsh Victorian pitch pine railway station bench, circa 1880, in good original condition. Constructed of solid pitch pine, the bench features a horizontal bar back that is supported by sturdy cast iron adjustable upright arms that travel through the seat. The bar back is designed to be adjustable, meaning that the bench can be used back to front by moving the bar back. This saves having to turn the bench around. The seat is constructed of solid pitch pine and features a concave shape for comfortable seating. The ends of the seat and bar back are chamfered. Two solid cast iron dome shaped stretchers that connect to the adjustable bar back support the bench. This style of bench would have been constructed for use on the British railway system, on station platforms during the late Victorian period. The bench boasts an excellent colour and patination. It is completely original and is very heavy and sturdy.
