19th Century Country French Trunk from Brittany is an extraordinary example of the quaint yet masterful works that have been produced in that peninsula for centuries!  Inspired by the Renaissance, artisans embellished the entire facade, including the top and sides, with elaborate carved detail sculpted into the actual framework and panels of the piece.  Motifs include foliate scrolls, large rosettes, demilune bordering and foliate styled corbels, with finely molded panels creating a multiple framed painting effect.  The top with its amazing carved detail opens to reveal capacious storage.  Ideal at the foot of the bed, along a wall or passageway, or especially as a dual-purpose coffee table, such artifacts make for instant family heirlooms everyone will enjoy for generations yet to come!
