Historic Mahogany Monk's Bench
Handcarved in solid mahogany to replicate
a 16th century antique
Our favorite English antique dealer agreed to have this stunning medieval Monk's Bench reproduced for us complete with all its rich, handcarved details. Clergy members used it to store vestments before the advent of closets. Both stylish and functional, this heavyweight, high-back bench with carved panels, provides seating for two, and deep storage for items such as fine linens, books or treasures from a bygone era. For authentic character, it takes over two weeks to hand carve and hand-finish the solid mahogany to replicate the original antique. A Toscano exclusive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to have this bench I fell in love with this bench almost 20 years ago but couldn't afford it. I ran across the picture I had saved from the catalog and couldn't believe it was still available. The bench, although not as heavy as it looks, is good quality construction, substantial not flimsy at all. The finish is very nice. The back is finished so you could put it in the middle of a room. Two things to note: the back curves a bit so it will sit off the wall about 2 inches, and the color of the stain is darker than the online photo shows. It appears to be a medium golden brown in the photo but in reality it is dark brown. It was well wrapped and padded for shipping.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks better on the picture. The bench does not look good at all. Its way too expensive for the quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one solid and beautiful bench I received this monk's bench today. It looks like it has been hand carved with deep designs on mahogany wood. It goes perfect in the breakfast room and compliments the medieval re-styling throughout the house. Beautiful and solid, even the seat. It sits well. I never thought I'd enjoy so much styling the house with medieval and Gothic themes. Wish I had done it sooner. I had scouted around in many places for a find like this and found some of the same style at much higher prices. Very pleased! Can't wait to get the York Gothic monk's bench. Bring it on Toscano. You amaze me.
