French fruit picking ladder


Exceptionally beautiful piece of folk art

Not just a simple fruit picking ladder, this piece was all made by hand and made to last even for next generations

Made from the best pieces of oak wood they had available that time

Beautiful weathered grey wood, bleaching from the sun in all of  these years

This beautiful fruit picking ladder was made in the Morvan region of France, and found in the beautiful town of Vezelay

Beautiful rustic handforged ironworks, hignes and nails, very sturdy and heavy in weight

There are a few very lovely old repairs on this ladder, on leg is been repaired in early stage and very beautifully done with the sane wood

Also a beautiful small corner piece has an old restoration as well

This piece will be great to use in so many ways, as a base for a lamp, of lovely plant table or in the bathroom for towels to name a few options
