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.

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

Condition:

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!!!

Shipping:

Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to the large size. There are several options:

The difference is cost and timing.

**Some of our less expensive blanket wrap service companies will take 4 - 6 weeks. They do an outstanding job, but the time frame may not meet your needs**

**Other shippers can be utilized for a 3-4 week delivery at approximately a 325.00 rate**

**UPS Freight will take only 2 weeks and costs more**

Please email me with your preference on shipping time AND your zip code for estimate.

I also invite you to take a minute to visit my store, Geaux Vintage Antiques, to see more English and European antique furniture, barley twist items, beveled mirrors, wall shelves, and many other unique and personally selected pieces for your home or office décor!
