1760 Bench


The 1760 bench of La Forge Saint Alman d'AnjouThe iconography of XVIIIth Century is rather miserly with outdoor furniture models.

But fortunately, we have some beautiful examples of benches which decorated the domains of France's Great.

The model we have chosen was in the Duke's park of Penthièvre in 1760.

It exists in 2 sizes :

- 1 toise (6.4 feet length - about 195 cm),

5 feet (about 160 cm length),

But we can study all sizes you will wish.

It was important to find a particularly resistant tree species in the bad weather and light. It must be easy to move enough (lawn mowing, maintenance of paths, wintering, etc.).

We thus chose the mahogany, the wood of extreme conditions which the architects of navy know well: it likes water and doesn't weigh down ships..

We only buy wood coming from the reasoned production because we are worried of protecting forest world heritage.

The paint is applied by “brush” with 3 coats of linseed oil which traps the humidity and allows the wood to inhale.

All Ral's colors are proposed without valuable modification.
