French Drapier Boutique Island, 19c.
Exquisite carved wood casegood, once used as counter in a drapier’s (clothier’s) shop. France, mid 19th century. Two operable doors on the front side of the piece; back is open with a base shelf. The corners of the countertop are square on the front edge, and rounded on the back. This was for a specific purpose: the square edges signify that the customer does not cross that point, and the rounded edge lend to ease of motion for the drapier. Pristine antique condition. This piece would make for the perfect kitchen island.
