19th c. Antique Hand Carved Victorian Wood from old English Church Pew
We were told this beautiful old and chunky piece of English oak was most likely from the side panel of a retired Victorian church pew. It was found in Totnes, Devon, England.
It features thickly carved wooden embellishments such as a flower, stem and 2 scroll leaves, a running trim, and 2 beautiful corner edge carvings. The reverse has "No. 1" handwritten on it, in old period ink or paint handwriting. It was apparently once part of a mural or decorative element.
This treen piece is a rich old piece of English oak. We recently oiled it with olive oil (organic, of course!), as it was dirty and dark, the result is a beautifully rich old piece, ready to hang or sit on a shelf.
Size: 7 and 3/8 inches x 7 and 7/8 inches, 6/8 inch thick.
