These original ESA Esavian old school benches with baskets are a very rare find indeed. Dating from around the late 1950’s to early 1960’s they are completely original. Constructed from solid beech and galvanised steel they now have the perfectly aged patina and style that is very highly sought after.
They came from a school in Newark, given to the PE teacher that had worked there for 35 years!

Most people know the furniture from school as a lot of it was produced in the 1950s and 60s. Esavian school stacking chairs were lightweight and strong, made with die-cast aluminium legs with a plywood seat and back rest. Their desks, benches, chests of drawers, racks, lockers and cupboards were all well designed and well made to last. The chests of drawers being particularly good for storage and usually made of beech hard wood.

An excellent example of the ever popular Abbess pedestal desk in Oak. These are often referred to as Teacher’s desks. This one dates from around 1940 and is in excellent condition. In the right hand pedestal there is one deep bottom drawer, an upper smaller drawer and a pull out stationary tidy.
The colour and condition are exactly as you would want an original vintage desk of this age. Comes complete with its original Abbess label on the front of the desk.
We have sold a number of these Abbess desks and they never hang around for long.
