This is a fine quality antique Victorian solid oak carved Green Man Hall settle / monks’ bench, circa 1890, in excellent original condition. Ideal for use in the hallway, with a large
storage box for shoes & boots. The settle comprises a high back, straight moulded top rail, decorated with a box-shaped carved border below, encompassing two large panels which feature carved folk art country scene depicting dancing characters, and a row of lunettes carvings below. Joining the back and seat are arms decorated with trailing foliate carvings, which transcend down onto sweeping armrests, decorated with carved lion heads.
The moulded panelled seat lifts up to reveal a large storage area, which is ideal for storing shoes and boots in the hallway! Below the seat, the front of the settle displays two finely carved “Green Man” face panels, flanked by seeping carved foliate scroll work. Decorative fan-shaped carved panels are visible on the sides of the settle. The settle rests on its original moulded plinth and block feet.
The settle features a rich mid-brown oak colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour, depth and patination this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms from the hallway or kitchen. This item would certainly grace any home and a great investment, as it’s an extremely functional item. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
This oak hall settle is in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, frame, sides and drawer bottoms, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The bench has been cleaned and traditionally wax polished by hand in our workshop, to a professional standard, therefore, the finish, colour and patination is of an excellent standard. The original hinges are in good working order. The settle retains its original polish, featuring a rich mid-brown oak colour. The settle is well constructed, solid in joint and is ready to be used.

Free UK Delivery*:
We offer free delivery to mainland England, Wales, and Southern Scotland (anywhere south of Stirling). *We do not offer free delivery to locations north of Stirling in Scotland, Northern Ireland, or any British Islands off the mainland; for example, the Isle of Man, Isle of White and Channel Islands. If you live in one of the areas where we do not offer free delivery, please contact us for a delivery quote before purchasing the item. Delivery will be made by our specialised antique furniture delivery service, or in some cases we will use a courier service for distant deliveries.
Delivery times are usually 1-4 weeks depending on location; we aim to deliver the majority of items within 2 weeks. All items are professionally packaged and fully insured in transit; therefore, we can assure you, your items will be securely protected in transit and arrive safely with you.
Once you have purchased an item, we will contact you by email and/or telephone and provide you with a provisional delivery date, in order for you to confirm if it is suitable for you. Once you have confirmed you can accept delivery on the provisional delivery date, we will book the delivery in with our shippers and it then becomes a confirmed delivery date.
We will also provide you with our shippers’ contact details, in case you need to contact the driver on the day of delivery. It’s helpful if you can provide us with both the landline and mobile telephone number, in case the driver cannot reach you on one of the numbers on the day of delivery, they can contact you on your alternative number.
In order to be able to offer you free delivery, it is based on a 1-man delivery only. For any large items that require 2 people to lift the item, we ask that you are available at the time of delivery to be able to give our shipper a lift off the van and into your house with the item. If you are not able to lift items yourself, we ask that you have someone on hand at the time of delivery to assist our shipper with lifting the item.

A free 14-day “no quibble” returns policy (from the date you receive the item) is available if you are not happy with this item.

We will collect returns using our own specialist furniture delivery company. We will not accept returns via a courier service (due to experience of damaged items in transit).
