Products - Cast Iron Bench Ends
Lost Art Limited are now pleased to offer pairs of castings of our historic bench ends, in order that enthusiasts can produce their own benches.
The castings are supplied in raw form. After production at the foundry, they are expertly fettled in order to remove any excess metal and sharp edges. Other than that, they receive no further treatment and are yours to paint, prepare and assemble as you wish.
The bench ends are produced in cast-iron at our local foundry. These are substantial items, each weighing an average of 22 kilos. They are all based on original castings from our extensive collection. Many of these are well over 100 years old and treated properly, the ones that we supply will last this long as well. Our products are not only ornamentation for your garden but also gifts to future generations.
It should be noted that, as the casting are supplied untreated, then small amounts of surface oxidation may be present when they are delivered. This is normal and will easily be removed with a wire brush or similar.
We recommend that pairs of bench ends can be used to produce a bench up to 6ft (1.85) metres in length, with The Dragon bench being an exception - we suggest up to 4ft in length. If you wish a bench to be longer than this, we suggest that you contact us in order to discuss the availability of a middle (support) castings, which is available for some styles of bench.
Delivery of bench ends is £95 per pair within the UK mainland. Please contact us if you wish delivery to other locations.
