Determining the Age of a Wooden Cobbler's Bench?

Please let me know if this is an old or "antique" bench. There appears to be no markings or labels. It has been around over 40 years that I am aware of, but I don't know if it was new or old 40 years ago.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
Thank you.

The ones made in this time are from the 19th century. Yours is a bit newer model and not the exact sames as the ones made in this time. I would say that your bench is more than likely 60 to 70 years old. Here is one made in the 19th centruy era so you can have an idea how the originals ones looked and how they differ from yours. You can also see this one was sold and the price it sold for. They are not woth that much and the person only received $50 when it was sold.

Neat item! Value for pieces like this is very regional.

I have seen them sell from 15.00 to 300.00. It depends on condition, supply and demand, an intricacies of the piece.


Your piece is very simple and well loved, so if you are in a high supply area you will fetch less than someone in high demand, low supply town.

You can always start high, and negotiate with the best offer.

It would be a cool end table! Thanks for sharing!!
