Used to tote pails of water and grain, these 19th-century yokes, or burden bars, transcend their functional origins to become a striking sculpture. Each fruitwood burden bar is gently tapered at the ends and softened by a rich patina. This set of five burden bars casts beautiful shadows when leaned against a wall, adding irregular form and textural contrast to the modern home.

Additional Dimensions:
Longest Bar: 2.5"W x 1.25"D x 91.75"H
Shortest Bar: 3"W x 1.5"D x 78.5"H
