ANTIQUE LOUIS XV STYLE
COUNTRY FRENCH BRITTANY CONSOLE
Item # LFA232
Charming antique Louis XV style Country French console in chestnut from a hunting lodge in Brittany. Circa 1880s. Beveled top with gadrooned edge above carved apron with motifs typical of artisans from the Brittany region. Raised on four stylized cabriole legs ending in pieds de biche. Single serpentine shelf.
Brittany is one of the six Celtic nations, and the only one in present day France. Celtic traditions and folklore survive to this day and ebenists from the region were often inspired by ornate Celtic ornamentation. The Breton carvers preferred stylized floral bouquets and branches, interlacing geometrical patterns, animals, human figures and village scenes in an original and imaginative country style. This console is a wonderful example of the Celtic influence. The intricately carved hoof feet add a whimsical touch. While being practical, they are delightfully naive.
