Description

#BN-01 Large Antique American Sweet Chestnut Bench ~ $1295

This extraordinary, rugged bench was made circa 1920 from native American Sweet Chestnut.  It is a very strong wood that is now extinct.  A blight brought in by a freighter from Japan in 1904 wiped out every chestnut tree within a few years.  American sweet chestnut was once one of the most plentiful trees in the eastern forest.  They grew to huge proportions.  It is said that one full size tree could fill a rail car with lumber.  It was used for everything from framing to furniture.  This bench was salvaged from a state building in Taunton, Massachusetts. 

Measurements:  Approx: 96"L x 26"D x 44 1/4"H

The seat is 14" high off the floor so it would need a 4" high upholstered cushion.
