French Walnut Celebration!!

25% Discount on walnut antiques July 5th – July 12th ONLY!

Bonjour and welcome to today’s visit to L’Ecole du Bon Gout.

Today’s subject is walnut wood. This wood, which can vary from light to dark, from yellow-brown to red-brown, comes from the Juglans Regia tree in Europe and the Juglans Migra tree in America. 

Walnut has been prized in France by cabinet makers at least as early as the Renaissance for its ability to be carved and lathe turned.This wood continues today to enjoy great popularity, largely because of the rich yet mellow patina achieved from a couple of centuries of waxing and polishing. 

To make the many walnut antiques here at Au Vieux Paris Antiques even more lovable:    ALL WALNUT ANTIQUES WILL BE ON SALE ONE WEEK ONLY JULY 5TH TO JULY 12TH, AT A 25% DISCOUNT!!!
