VICTORIAN PINE PIGEON HOLE SHELF IN ORIGINAL PAINT NUMBERED
Originating from a local cotton mill, dating back to late Victorian times, these shelves have been a great find.
The lovely thick period pine, cleaned and waxed, gives the pigeon holes a most tactile and irresistible look, most people need to stoke the wood!!
Added bonus are the original number stencils, to be found on the front sections and remnants of original old paint.
The quirky step on one end just adds to the industrial character.
But, not only handsome, also useful, in every which way one might to place them, upright or horizontally, good for all sorts of storage or display.
Most original and genuine cubbies we've had for a while!
No worm or structural damage, just good old fashioned industrial wear and tear.

ANTIQUE RUSTIC WALL HERB RACK / WALL SHELF WITH PEGS 1840
Very rural and rustic in origin and character, this rare herb rack was found in good condition and colour.
It does show the rustic heritage, plenty of bumps and a fair amount of old worm holes, but you'd think it odd if it didn't have this kind of character.
These racks are often found in large farmhouse kitchens, have seen them in Scandinavia and then again in Romania, Hungary, Spain etc. Often painted and decorated, this one just in the old mellow pine.
Two shallow shelves for plate/ jelly jar storage, a long pegged rail below to hang your herbs for drying or maybe your hat!
The lovely undulating top bar (can be omitted) is to secure additional plates, too big to go on the shelves.
If you have the space, this is an impressive country rack for use or display.
Dimensions:
2130mm long
350mm high
150mm deep

Please note that all our furniture is treated for wood worm, regardless if it has worm or not, using a very effective, non toxic environmentally sound product. Any wood worm damage worth mentioning will be stated in the description.
