A very beautiful solid elm barrel back settle with a particularly good colour and patination and made by a skilled hand in c. 1740
Very sturdy and solid, exceptionally heavy, and comfortable with a wide original curved twin boarded seat.
The back boards are all original as is the barrel banding and all fixed with original hand forged iron nails. Substantial dovetailed joints to the canopy and lovely soft shaping to the side panels and arms.
This settle could easily be placed in the centre of a room as a partition as it is attractive from all sides and very large with a beautiful hooded canopy and original ledge to the bottom boards below the seat.
