Pair of Benches, Northern Elm (yamu)
These richly carved benches are made from very thick Elm. No need to worry if a very overweight person chooses to sit on one of them. Each would probably hold an elephant. Why did I buy this pair? Because they are simply beautiful, and finding a pair of benches is much harder than finding just one. Also they are relatively short, so they have more transferability from one place to another than the large benches which, by their size, are less easily transported. First quarter of 20th century.
