A Very Good Quality, Mid 19th Century, Victorian Period Mahogany Window Seat Hall Bench, Of Unusually Large Proportions, Having Superbly Figured Rectangular Top With Elegant Raised Turned Rolls To Each End, Raised On Turned Tapering Legs.

These window seats, or hall benches, generally follow a relatively similar theme in terms of their design throughout the regency and victorian periods. However as with many things the quality of construction and timbers used can vary quite wildly.

Another thing which varies quite significantly is their size, with it possible to find tiny one person seaters through to some particularly grand ones which can be as long as 8ft. As the description suggests they were often dual purpose in terms of their original construction, designed to sit either underneath a window, or along the wall of a hallway or similar.

This particular victorian hall bench is a particularly good size, much longer than the average and also a little deeper. It has great presence and is constructed from good quality mahogany which retains an attractive colour and patina.

There are no signifcant structural defects and overall the condition could be described as good, which often isnt the case with these items as they tend to have been used and abused a great deal over the years.

Of course it is incredibly functional. There are a wide variety of places around both the home and office which it could be used and it is incredibly functional due to how sturdy it is. As well as being placed somewhere one may wish to have a seat it is also worth bearing in mind it would make an excellent coffee table.

As with all items which we offer for sale this hall bench has been attended to in our workshops by our highly skilled, specialist, antique furniture restorers, where it has received a natural wax polish to ensure it is in excellent condition and ready to be placed immediately into the home.
