Charming Antique Carved French Wood Floral Piece (#02)


On my About Us page I described a village brocante fair we happened upon one day outside of Saumur, France. The couple I purchased my old copper pots from also had these beautiful old wood carvings. The man mentioned that his grandfather had worked in a furniture workshop and he was selling these old pieces that his grandfather had given to him years ago. Of course, I fell in love with them and despite my husbands usual question, "And what are you going to make with these?", I had no answer to the question, but had to buy them! I have kept a few just to display on a table and am selling the others.

Stunning antique hand carved wood carved piece, circa 1880-1900. One corner is chipped, which adds to its charm. This wood piece would look lovely in a grouping of other finds. I've added a photo of an arrangement with some of these that I made that hangs in our living room. The delicate carved pieces are really a work of antique art. This piece will be shipped wrapped in bubble wrap in a small Priority box.
