19th century Antique French Carved Cabinet Breton Brittany Petite End Table
19th century French Carved Cabinet Breton Brittany Petite End Table.
Direct from the Brittany region of France, a highly carved petite cabinet, versatile for placement throughout the home.
The style and design are true to the Celtic roots of the Brittany region of France, which was heavily dependent on fishing and maritime, so the hand carvings are noted for spindled ship’s wheels and symbolic use of men and women in traditional Celtic dress to represent their strong work ethic, yet also their enjoyment of life.
All these Breton carved features are present in this cabinet! Ornate Celtic carvings across the drawer front, with full length carvings on either front edge. Large center door panel features “ship’s wheel spindle” half arches over a beautiful carved Brittany scene with gentleman in full period clothing, from hat to shoes, sitting upon a stone, with trees to the left and cottage in the background.
Scalloped and carved lower apron and carved, shaped legs; carvings to each side panel.
Traditionally antique furniture from this region had a very dark finish and was frequently carved from oak or chestnut wood.
Solid, heavy and strong, well built by craftsmen of the period, c1890.
Measurements: 31.75” ht. x 19” x 20”.
