The Arden Spies has been made from a section of reclaimed English elm. The timber was rescued by Sticks & Stone from an old English farmhouse which was subject to renovation. This 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. 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.
The Arden Spies is a true testament to the history of the building it once formed a part of. This characterful piece features original refurbished metal work & the original hand cut notches. This wine rack is bursting with character & due to it’s age dating back to 1750 has a true depth of colour. This bespoke wine rack can hold up to 6 bottles of your favourite wine.
