This American Chestnut is from a dairy barn built in Tazewell VA in the early 1900s. This piece is "Rustic"! There are many wormy holes and nail holes when the nails were pulled from the boards. Talk about history and character in a piece - this has it. You will also notice lighter and darker colors on the frame. This indicates the board facing inside or outside of the barn. This is our Slender design in Extinct Wormy Chestnut with African Mahogany trim. The Slender design named itself with its graceful slender lines. American Chestnut became extinct due to a blight brought in from the Chinese Chestnut tree. The only way to find American Chestnut now is from old barns/buildings taken down.

To reveal the natural colors and character in the hardwood we use clear gloss lacquer. There is nothing quite like the natural beauty in American Chestnut. This beautiful wooden work-of-art has the added feature of being illuminated with candles or led lighting. Our Handmade Rustic Wood Centerpiece Lantern adds beauty to living room decor.
