19th Century French Carved Butcher Block with Back and Bronze Cow Head
This antique “Billot de Boucher”, or butcher block was crafted in France, circa 1890. The piece stands on fluted and spindled-shaped legs with diamond shape medallions at the shoulders, over a carved three-side scalloped apron. The tabletop, made of mixed woods including maple and beech wood, features a carving station surface shaped from generations of use, and decorated with metal brackets at each corner; the station sits over a large center drawer dressed with the decorative brass handle. The carved back from a later addition is decorated with volutes on both sides and decorated with a bronze bull head and polished steel metal knife slot holder dressed with two meat cleavers. The butcher table is in very good condition commensurate with age and use and adorns a rich light walnut patina. Place this charming work table in your kitchen or breakfast room for the ultimate Country French look; a true one of a kind! Two antique butcher knifes included. Measures: 59″ W x 24.5″ D x 56″ H.
