1885 Welsh Pitch Pine Church Chapel Pews from Porth URC


Shapely narrow ends, suitable for tight hallways or a space challenged kitchen. These pews have the prized ‘craquelure’ crazed varnish finish which seems to be fairly unique to Welsh church furniture. We think this is a side effect of coating older pews back in the day very generously with shellac (a natural early varnish) and extremes of temperature: Low Welsh Churches didn’t seem to go for heating in the old days.

Can be 41cm deep without shelf

(Please note the pictures show an example of this style of pew. There could be slight variances, such as wood grain.)
