We have packed a lot of primitives in this photo. Don't they look great? These pieces are mostly from France with a few finds from around the United States. Here's a quick rundown: French Industrial Cart Fantastic cart from the Metz region of France. Dating back to the early 1900s, this piece is constructed of a solid metal frame painted a beautiful French blue (original paint!). Wide pine planks provide top and bottom shelving. Four sturdy wheels provide easy mobility. Great for a kitchen, bar or porch. Could easily be utilized as a media center. Versatile, beautiful and definitely one-of-a-kind.Jelly Cupboard Jelly cupboards have always been popular because of their beauty and adaptability. This gorgeous piece is from New England (around the early 1900s). Featuring clean simple lines, ample storage and a one-door enclosure, this piece represents form and function in its purist sense. Also, it’s painted a charming "Sprout" green. Homemade French Cabinet What a find! Dating back to the 1800s, this diminutive piece manages to include drawers, shelving and cabinet doors for a nice amount of storage. It’s entirely handmade and still retains the original muted yellow paint and lovely rustic hardware. A true diamond-in-the-rough, and a lovely example of simple, homespun beauty. French Shutters and Wooden Pitchfork These are fantastic! We're always looking for authentic, interesting antiques and these two pieces definitely fit the bill.
- The shutters are a matched pair and are uniquely tall and narrow in design. Dating back to the 1800s, they still retain their original smoky-gray paint. Joined together by pegs (from an older age of carpentry) with rustic latches and hinges, this piece would easily add depth and interest to any room in your house.
- The wooden pitchfork is craftsmanship and design at its best. Carved by hand and made from a single piece of wood that is then split into three prongs, the mastery of this piece needs to be seen to fully appreciate. Not only is it a wonderful architectural statement, it’s a great conversation piece, representative of a skill and expertise long since past.
Also in the photo: More architectural pieces in the form of a newel pillar from St. Louis and a column from Florida. Also sprinkled throughout our vignette: handsome old andirons from France, a charming wood strawberry box, lovely sea glass blue seltzer bottles, old storage tins and a happy mix of china, silver and flower urns to complete the picture.Please stop by and browse through all the choices we offer to compliment any decor in your home.
