Settle, Anonymous, c. 1500

wood, h 82cm × w 80.5cm × d 51cm. More details

By shifting the back, you could use both sides of this settle. Sitting before a fire, you could alternate positions to keep your whole body warm. Under the seat is a storage space for keeping valuables safe. Settles such as these would have stood in the houses of ordinary citizens. They are the forerunners of separate chests, chairs and settees.

On display in room 0.4-06 Chests and cupboards
