Approximately dated from 5000 BC, the bog oak used for this extraordinary piece of furniture is truly special. Oak that has been buried in peat bogs sometimes is preserved from rotting by the acidic and anaerobic conditions of the bog. The wood becomes petrified, almost fossilised through this very slow process which can take thousands of years. Older wood, such as the wood we have used here, is almost completely black yet possesses rich variations in hue characteristic of ‘live’ wood. This very rare bog oak is locally sourced from Garstang and has been featured beautifully with natural oak. The contrasting tones create a work of art, which showcases the wood at it’s best. The drawers are bow fronted with bog oak handles and a sophisticated inlay which frames each drawer perfectly.
