Pair of Silvered English Lutyens-Style Bench in Teak
Elegant and classical without being fussy, Lutyens-Style benches are always a hit with our clients. Perfect in a formal garden or up against a simple green hedge, and originally designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1910, this pair is very solid with moderate silver weathering that will continue to patinate over the years. Lutyens benches were originally made in two lengths and this is the shorter of the two sizes. Feel free to leave this bench outside and uncovered in all climates year-round to hasten the patination. In very good vintage condition overall, there are three legs on one bench and one leg on the other bench that show some nibbles at the bottoms (see photos below), but they do not compromise the beauty or functionality of this pair.
