The artisans of rural France may not have had the sophisticated cabinetmaker's tools and equipment, but they were still able to produce fully functional furnishings, such as this example. With only the top panel carved in a stylized geometric pattern, it was surely intended to serve as a storage place for boots, outerwear and the like, and stood guard just inside the side or back entrance most often used by the home's owners.
Circa 1900-1910.
