An elegant country dowry cabinet was hand-carved of solid chestnut in Brittany, with high-relief scenes of a wedding couple in traditional dress. Notice the picturesque wooden shoes, windmill and steep-roofed stone houses in the background.

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, the local hand-carved furniture has outstanding workmanship, using native local hardwoods with picturesque traditional motifs.

The finish is excellent on this heirloom furniture, which traditionally descended with the daughters of a family, as part of their dowry.

Carved about 1900, this antique separates into pieces for easier moving. Brasses are original. There are shrinkage cracks, separations and warps - see photos. Dimensions are 4'8" wide, 23" deep, 8' tall, the main surface is 38" above the floor.

This beautiful cupboard / cabinet has been rephotographed and relisted.
