A late 19th century pine workbench from a former boatyard in Devonport, Plymouth. This area of Devon has been synonymous with the Royal Navy and maritime activity for many centuries, having been commissioned as a Royal Dockyard by William III (Prince William of Orange) in 1690.
Varnished pine with original flush-mounted military style brass handles and later zinc top. At 90cm it is the ideal work surface height, and could easily be incorporated as a storage unit within a kitchen. Alternatively, it would work well as a sideboard.
