Chartres, the Beautiful City

We spent today around the beautiful city of Chartres, famous for its Gothic cathedral with its breathtaking stained glass windows. Here are our favorite finds today:

A one hundred year old camera made of walnut and brass with the original brass label of the camera maker in Paris.

A hand carved oak Provençal pétrin full of symbolic carvings for the family who owned it.

A Louis XIV style walnut armchair with exquisite needlepoint upholstery. You can’t see it in my photo, but the nail heads are brass lion heads.

A beautiful 44” high buffet made of hand carved oak. This Provençal piece is one hundred years old, and the hardware is exceptional!

Our lodging for the night.
