Traditional Brittany design is truly inspiring in a back bar cabinet with hand carved figures and three dimensional scenes of village life from about 1900. Solid chestnut, the incredible three dimensional sculptures are full figured statues - true individual representations of the wedding couple and their relatives.

The finish is excellent, wrought iron hardware and working locks are original. Drawers are hand dovetailed, panels are raised - virtuoso workmanship is superior everywhere.

Brittany or Bretagne is a maritime province of northwest France. Formerly a separate country, the "Breton" language is still spoken. Famous for their cultural traditions and distinctive dress and wooden shoes, the local hand-carved furniture has outstanding workmanship, using native local hardwoods with picturesque traditional motifs.

Heirloom furniture traditionally descended with the daughters of a family as part of their dowry and served to store her needlework, pewter and silver.

Measurements of this heroic cabinet are 62" wide, 22" deep, 99" tall and the base is 38" high.
