18th Century Country French Regence Period Bonnetiere is a remarkable example of rural French artisanry from the storied Bordeaux region, with a solid casework joined with pegged mortise & tenon techniques, and hand-carved molding and detail adornment that would make any sculptor proud!  Able to fit in narrow niches unlike any other, such pieces were common near family entrances so that outer garments could be stored immediately upon arrival, and be there when ready to depart.  What a wonderful artifact from a bygone era, and perfect for today's open floor plans!

Circa 1730s
