Antique French Brittany bench has decorative carving over the entire surface that mimics the life size antique Breton folk art furniture from Brittany, France. Made of sturdy oak, it is finished in a dark brown stain. The back has turned spindles inside three circle cutouts that look like ship's wheels – a nod to this sea faring peninsula. Incised petals surround the wheels. The top is decorated with multiple spindles. The ship's wheels are repeated on the seat front. The seat, decorated with carved flowers and geometric designs, has a hinged lid for storing blankets or keepsakes.
Made in the early 1900s, this impressive bench measures 10 1/4" t x 14 1/2" x 4 3/8" d. The seat height is 4 1/4" tall. It is in excellent condition and makes a great folk art bench to display with your smaller antique dolls or teddy bears.
