Superb and Rare Pair of Mid 17th Century Carved Oak Pew Ends

Superb and rare pair of mid 17th Century carved oak pew ends in the English baroque style. By repute, removed from St. Stevens church, Walbrook, in the city of London in the 1980`s and probably carved by William Newman, flourished 1670-1694. The grade I listed masterpiece, designed by Christopher Wren and built after the great fire of London, 1672-1679. Sir Nikolaus Pevsner lists it as one of the ten most important buildings in England.
The church was modernised in the 1980`s to make way for a massive stone alter commissioned by Henry Moore. The original pews removed and replaced with modern ones.
Each pew end measures 41cms wide X 102cms high.
