Signs of wear due to its age give an insight into its former functional life and provide the bench with an attractive worn look. Historic worm in a few places most noticeably in the lower legs. Also on the front face of the lower drawer, and the r/h side of the last vice block. All has been treated with no signs of new activity.
This fantastic item spent its working life used by a cobbler in Lewes near Brighton from the early 1920’s and still stands firm today.
A great piece of genuine vintage industrial workshop furniture. Fitting for use as a retail shop display, home storage/ decorative use, or for any aspiring cobbler.
