Circa 1700-20 with fielded panels, canted rear stiles with large turned finials, early iron hinges and original improvised leatherwork protecting the storage below. Great shape to the arms, too.
The finials on the back of the settle are a story of their own - it shows exactly how the seat was made. The are integral to the stiles - they are not applied - they were turned as a single piece. The groove in one finial proves this.
The frame is built from the bottom up.
The fielded panels are dropped in from above into the joined frame. The top rail is then dropped into place. The scoring in the finial allows the tenon to track into its final resting place, then pegged tight.
Tight enough to hold steadfast for 300 years and counting…
Shown with a Primitive 18th Century elm and oak Westmorland tripod.
