Very old French farm ladder
£0.00 - Now Sold
This very old French farm ladder is an extremely rustic piece with extraordinary curves - it's bowed outwards and also sideways. Some of the rungs are pegged in the old tradition, and it's well-weathered, with the result that it almost looks like a piece of driftwood. It would look great to display textiles, or, as it's very tall, it could be cut down into two shorter lengths, and waxed, to provide a couple of characterful, wall-leaning towel rails. There are signs of historical woodworm - long gone, but all of our timber items are treated for woodworm as a matter of course.
Please note: This ladder is intended for decorative purposes only - it will not bear any substantial weight, and is certainly no longer fit for purpose due to its age.
