A lovely old antique French oak maie or dough bin trough.
Size approx 150cm long, 72cm wide and 53cm high, perfect as a coffee table statement piece for a large room or an end of bed coffer.
The item is rustic and naively made, from ancient oak timbers so it is charmingly rough and ready!
There are lots of nibbles and notches to the timbers, the old iron hinges are loose, repairs have been made with bits of zinc, it has certainly enjoyed a hard working life and is not pristine though has bags of character. The half barrel form with stile legs is very unusual, it is iron bound and retains the central divider. The top is planked. This is a heavy and substantial antique country made piece.
