Antique French Bonnetiere

11964

Bonnetiere is named after "bonnet", as in what these pieces were meant to hold.  This was either placed near the door for easy access to keep outdoor clothes, or as extra space for storage in the bedroom.  

This French fruitwood bonnetiere was built and kept on the West Coast of France between Bordeaux and La Rochelle since 1820.  Can you imagine the great wine this piece has held over the years?
