About this piece
Price was £3,200
With three root legs and a thick cross-grain top
England, twentieth century
Yew wood (Taxus Baccata) is one of the hardest of the soft woods and was historically used in England to make longbows due to its strength and elasticity. In medieval England, there was such demand for the wood that it had to be imported from other European countries for longbow production. Yew also has highly poisonous leaves and berries which were often eaten by warriors who preferred to die by the sword or by 'the yew tree' than surrender to their enemy.
The strength and wonderful twisted and knotty formation of the yew tree make for interesting furniture, with contorted forms.
