NOTE ABOUT THE PROVENANCE OF THIS MIRROR:  We directly purchased furnishings from the estate of a French boucherie shop owner.  The many pieces included this Breton mirror, the matching Breton dining table, and dining chairs.  Also a stunning carved Renaissance console/sofa table AND the original boucherie shop sign (all to be sold separately)!

IT’S ALWAYS SO SPECIAL TO KNOW THE PROVENANCE OF YOUR ANTIQUES!

Brief note about Brittany Style Antique French Furniture   

 The Celtic roots of the Brittany region of France are manifest in the furniture produced in this region. The Breton style is as distinctive as its special culture and easily recognizable due to its very ornate carvings.  Historically, the local economy in Brittany was heavily dependent on fishing and maritime activities, so one often finds circles and ship's wheels as a common decorative motif in the Brittany Style of antique furniture.
