Long Elm Dough Bin c.1790.

Unusually large late 18th.c. elm dough bin c.1790.

Ideal now as a long rustic sideboard or strong enough to use as a window seat. Constructed from long solid elm boards with exposed joints at the ends. With a shaped handle to the lid and raised on shaped feet front and rear. Very good unrestored condition and lovely mellow colour.
