Lower Load has been handmade from a piece of reclaimed English oak. The timber was rescued by Sticks & Stone from an old English farmhouse which was subject to renovation. The beam used to create this piece once formed a part of the original building structure. The structural beam used here was from a large farmhouse in Tanworth In Arden.
Tanworth In Arden is a village on the outskirts of Birmingham. Over time commuters wanted green fields therefore these villages became more popular. Many older buildings were demolished or extended to make larger family homes as there was an increase in more opulent houses being built.
After many years of agricultural success as an arable & live stock farm the decision was made to sell off the land. The farmhouse was eventually sold after all the farmland had gone. The house itself was completely remodelled & extended. It became lavish accommodation for it’s new owners. Many of the original beams that were not used in the renovations we were able to obtain & bring them back to life as character filled wine racks.
Lower Load features amazing surface texture & depth of colour due to it’s age. As this was an original part of the farmhouse Lower Load dates back to 1750. This rack is absolutely bursting with character & can hold up to 9 bottles of your favourite wine.
