french garden chair

this lovely metal garden chair came from the wonderful annual ham* and antiques fair at Chatou (outside Paris), where my then very young sons had wanted to bargain for a full size cannon of their own to take home!

(*mais bien sûr, that is ham as in jambon du cochon! - why not get your cured meat and napoleonic cannons all in one place!!)

circa early 1900's, with its original flaking green paint patina... so much french charm for a hard to let go $300
