Midas has been made from a section of reclaimed English oak. The timber was rescued by Sticks & Stone from an old English farmhouse which was subject to renovation. This beam used to create Midas 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. With the increase in more opulent houses being built many older buildings were demolished or extended to make larger family homes.
After many years of agricultural success as an arable & live stock farm the decision was made to sell off the land. Once all the land had been sold so was the farmhouse. The house itself was completely remodelled & extended. It became lavish accommodation for it’s new owners. Luckily we were able to obtain the original beams that were not used in the renovation. Sticks & Stone have brought them back to life as character filled wine racks.
Midas is a true testament to the scale of the building it once formed a part of. This magnificent piece features original refurbished metal work & the original hand cut notches. This wine rack is bursting with character & due to it’s ages dating back to 1750 has a true depth of colour. Midas not only impressive by name but can hold up to 14 bottles of your favourite wine.
