NOTE ABOUT THE PROVENANCE OF THESE CHAIRS:  We directly purchased furnishings from the estate of a French boucherie shop owner.  The many pieces included this set of chairs, the matching Breton dining table, and a Breton pier mirror.  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.

 

Measurements:

41”height x 17.5”across the seat front x 16.5”deep;

14” across the chair back;

18.75”height from floor to seat top.

 

NOTE:  All of our antiques are direct from Europe.   I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques!

PLEASE SHOP OUR STORE and feel free to email with any questions!

 

Shipping:

Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to size.  White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only), typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.

   Please email Geaux Vintage Antiques with your zip code for a shipping estimate.

 

Condition:

The chairs are in good condition for their age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections.   Wear and creasing to the leather, but much better condition than we typically find in antique leather.  Seats are firm and suitable for daily use.

 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 bidding.  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!!!
