French Early 20th Century Art Deco Pine Butcher Block
Dimensions: 34-1/4″H x 59″W x 23-3/4″D
A fine butcher table, made in Nantes, France circa 1920. The table’s top boasts exceptional patination. A groove has been left from decades of knife work and butchery. The top is bound together with steel bindings that help to keep the top from splitting. The butcher block rests on a stylish pine base that has been influenced by the Art Deco movement that was occurring at the time of its construction. The base has a large drawer and the maker’s badge that has his name, R. Lerat, and even his shop’s address at 18 R’de Bouville in Nantes, France.
