French Trunk

French Bretonne furniture is distinctive in its heavy, dark oak intricately carved with human faces and figures, plants, animals, and ship wheels reflecting Brittany's close ties to the sea. This trunk has two human carvings on the front: a woman wearing a hat and dress with a home in the background, and a man also in a hat in front of a brick wall. Rectangles, squares, and fretwork are extremely common in Bretonne carvings. This trunk has a repetitive squared floral design consistent with items from Brittany, France.
