French Apprentice or Sample Piece - Chair or Settle with lift up box seat
Out of stock
French made apprentice or sample chair - although not stamped or marked we think this made by J Courrett in a place called Quimple in the district of France known as Finistere. We have a couple of other pieces almost identical in style and design so we are pretty confident about the maker. (Too big to be dolls house furniture.)
Although it is in excellent condition the lid of the seat does not close 100% perfectly - this is the way it was made, not damaged. We are guessing that in many sample or apprentice pieces it was less important to be perfect, more about showing the style of the piece.
The piece probably dates from the early 20th and is in excellent condition
It measures approx. 26cm tall x 10cm x 12cm
