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.

Most antique furniture in the Brittany Style was carved out of chestnut, a wood with a very dark finish. A hallmark feature of the Brittany Style of French Country Antique Furniture is the symbolic use of men and women in traditional Celtic dress to represent a strong work ethic, piety, and the enjoyment of life.

Condition:

This item is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections.   There is a round “peg” hole in the top of their heads that leads me to believe these were probably columns for a large Brittany cabinet.

 I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to making a purchase.  Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
