Antique Primitive Water Bench, Northern Europe 19th Century

A primitive antique water bench from Northern Europe in a particularly beautiful shade of green. This rather unique piece would have sat in the porch of a country farmhouse with pots holding water underneath, to give refreshment to those working in the yard, meaning there was no need to remove boots to go back into the house. Pigs, chicken and perhaps a goat would have been the traditional accompaniment to a piece such as this.

The neat dimensions of this make it extremely versatile in a modern rustic setting, perhaps in a hallway, a bathroom or a bedroom. Wear is consistent with its rural use and age, yet it remains a sturdy and functional piece to perch on, with a space underneath for books, decorative pieces, blankets or towels.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
