Customer Question

I have what appears to be a church choir pew bench with 4 stalls. Ornate carvings on all stall arms and the back is carved to look like a curtain. Looks like it could have been a misericord bench but the seats don't have a rest area when lifted up. This bench is very very heavy. Who can appraise this in Knoxville tn?

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Thank you. I have it in a climate controlled storage unit. I will send pictures shortly. It is a very interesting piece. I believe it is very old and have not tried to restore it or clean it at all.
