A wonderfully rustic French wooden housemaids trug or tray with a central divider and cut out handle.
This item would probably have been made in the farmhouse workshop, from timbers sourced on the land. It has hand forged nails and plank base.
A very useable caddy for keeping toiletries, craft items, letters and papers, or even cleaning items as would have been the probable original use.
Size approx 33 x 25cm, 18cm high.

*The customer is responsible for any import duties and taxes incurred for an item. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.
**Please also note that deliveries within France are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. Deliveries to other European destinations are generally to your doorstep.
If your destination is not included on our shipping list please feel free to contact me for a shipping quote. We apologise that due to tax complications we are no longer able to ship to UK.
Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
