Brief note about Brittany Style Antique
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.

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!
We have a WIDE SELECTION of English & French antique mirrors…see them in our store at www.geauxvintage.com
The huge carved frame is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, scratches, dings, and other imperfections. The upper dome had a small 1 inch piece of trim damaged and reglued. The mirror reflection is good for its age, no cracks/chips with small age appropriate dots and wear as to be expected on antique mirrors….again, it is an antique mirror and NOT a new one!! 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 offerding. 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!!!
