Cherry wood farm table – 19th century – Périgord
Close your eyes and imagine …
A soft light, that of the flames of the cantou from which escapes the sweet aroma of bacon soup, the familiar voices where the Occitan accent sings, the young wine which refreshes us in glasses darkened by time … You are in a farm in Périgord in the 19th century and you are going to feast.
The patriarch sat at the end of the table, with his back to the fireplace, a privilege of age. He opens the drawer, his drawer, and finds there the loaf of bread he is going to share. The family is complete. The mother, armed with rags so as not to burn herself, places the steaming pot on the table. The traces of the burning cast iron feet can still be seen there.
On the basis of the previous soup, she has added in the morning a duck carcass and seasonal vegetables, continuing throughout the year the preparation of a soup with always varied flavors.
Now that you have your mouth watering, open your eyes and take a closer look at this beautiful farmhouse table. This table has experienced all these warm and comforting moments as closely as possible.
It is simple and solid, carved from thick planks of cherry wood. Nothing is superfluous, but everything has been thought of, including the chamfered feet linked together by an H spacer, the famous “barre à chats” (cat bar) where they were allowed to make their claws, as long as they had well protected from rodents the granaries and cellars.
