Seller: thebedworkshop (54) 100%, Location: Bristol, Bristol, Ships to: GB, Item: 232139852971 19thC solid carved Chestnut Breton Marriage armoire, c1870 from Tregunc.Breton marriage armoires are the most celebrated of French country furniture. The brides parents would have started saving for her trousseau from the time of their Childs puberty, which would be delivered on the back of the makers cart for exhibition at the wedding party. The brass clouts are used sparingly but with effect. Houses are croft-like and built with no windows to the weather-side, only the opposite elevation (south). The low afternoon sun shoots in through these tiny windows and hits the brass clouts which light up like stars in an otherwise rather damp, dark 19thC cottage. I have this happening at 5pm daily in my kitchen and I still find it magical. Can be fitted with hanging rail as needed. Measures 128 cm wide down the main part x 186 cm tall x 58 cm deep. Comes completely apart for delivery. Available to view at our Bristol workshop showroom. Delivery anywhere in the UK, please contact us for our best delivered price. Age: 1800-1899, Product Type: Cabinets, Original/Reproduction: Original, Material: Chestnut
