Sometimes in this business you just get lucky, unfortunately, it does not happen very often, but finding an antique store counter in this condition, that no yaya European dealer played around with is a rarity. Our in house workshop approached the counter with the term, conservation in mind and not restoration. This is an absolutely outstanding and completely original antique Country French store counter, that could make a magnificent Country French kitchen. We are constantly on the search for untouched old store fittings, as the British would call them, but for us, this is simply an antique store counter, that is screaming to be converted into a kitchen island. To find one that has not been beat beyond saving, as most commercial pieces are and in this incredible French putty grey-green color palette, is the equivalent to finding the proverbial needle in the hay stack. The paint is original and all our Old Plank workshop did, was thoroughly wash the antique counter inside and out. The original top was similarly cleaned and left alone, although a good coat of natural beeswax could bring it to life, without removing any of its natural patina. As far as store counters, store fixtures or store fittings are concerned, this antique French soon to be kitchen island is about as good as it gets.
