Salvaged steel. 17”height , 16.5 width, 19” length. 0.75” thick top.
Boiler plates were bolted to the floor in the old tobacco warehouses forming a path along which the heavy tobacco carts could be wheeled without damaging the wooden floors. These boiler plates come in rectangular and square sizes and, as there aren’t many left, are very difficult to get hold of. The legs are recycled boiler pipes from an old house in Old North Durham.
The close up shows the bolt hole and the antique and much used surface of the boiler plate.
