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 said that his grandfather had worked in a furniture workshop. 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 t a ruler to show size.
Stunning antique wood carved piece, circa 1880- 1900. Hand carved with delicate scrolls and flourishes. I believe the wood is pine. A ruler is adjacent for measuring perspective.
