antique set of french fruit picking ladders in old distressed paint




Item Ref



A not too tall set of French fruit picking ladders, made in pine and found in a time worn original colour scheme.
Traditional tapered style, the top part of the two ladders fitting inside each other, connected by a sturdy iron bar, bolted through.
The poles of the ladders are undamaged and covered in a very faded muted colour scheme, blues, creams, with an ancient, very tactile uneven finish.
The rungs are also painted, but worn down to the pine, the kind of natural wear one cannot copy or reproduce.
The letters M. S. & Cie. are carved into each upright pole, the manufacturer no doubt.
Stemming from the north east of France, Cidre country.. dating around 1920.
Very sturdy and good to use, cleaned, but left un-polished.
A wonderful decorative prop, shop display / shop fitting, clothes rack, towel rail, focal point, the uses are many..
680mm wide at the base
240mm wide at the top top
1970mm high
50mm thick poles
30mm thick rungs
280mm rungs distance
