This is one of a pair of old Ericsson Colombes Bakelite telephones we bought on a brocante sale in central France. They are in excellent condition with the wiring intact. They would need to be converted for modern usage, but I believe that is not too difficult. The Bakelite is in good solid and un-cracked condition with no serious chips or scratches. Remarkable for their age.

This military beret is a genuine Laulhère Oloron in merino wool. It's a small size (54) which translates to 6.75 in the UK and US. but this particular type of army beret is meant to be shallow and worn small, on top, and to the side of the head with the slot for a badge worn over the space between eye and ear, the side depending on the regiment. You can see an example from the photo of a French soldier. It's size would also allow it to fit a child when worn in a less military style.

It's in excellent clean condition.

Found on a brocante sale in rural France. An authentic piece of French kitchenalia from , and I'm guessing, the 1950s. It has a lovely patina, and has been well used over the years, but still in good condition and still very usable. It has obviously been made by a country craftsman, and has a very crude rustic look. Would look great in a country style kitchen.

This is a very solid oak box found on a brocante sale in France. No key unfortunately, but still in great condition. A craftsman made box in oak with brass adornments. I am guessing it's from the 1940s but could easily be much older.

Found on a brocante sale in rural France. The old traditional cast iron soap dish, probably dating back to the 1920s or earlier. A little bit flaky, a bit of rust. Perfect qualifications for the category of French 'shabby chic'.

This is a classic set of dungaree style overalls known as salopette in France from the general range of working clothes that is known as 'Bleu de Travail'. These are made by the well known French company called Sanfor. They make a high quality heavyweight range that fade beautifully with time and wear. A thicker and heavier material than many other salopette manufacturers.

Bought in a sale in rural France. This is an authentic chore coat from the range known in France as 'bleu de travail'. I am guessing from around the 60s. It has started to fade nicely, and has a couple of tiny pen leaks on the top pocket, but shows authenticity. It has a button up front and large patch pockets. Unfortunately, the label is too faded to give much information, but more importantly, I have included the actual measurements below.

This would make a great overall coat for artists, sculptors, studio potters, etc. and is still in great condition.

We found this in a sale in rural France. Made by the well respected French company Bragard who supply jackets to top chefs and bakers internationally (see their website). It's in good condition...dark grey with a red embroidered motif, which tells us that it comes from a boulangerie and was owned by Benedicte, who was responsible for sales. I sense a story. Did he get the sack for dipping into the patisseries a little too often, or did he just put on weight for the same reason?!! Either way, he doesn't need his jacket anymore, so it could be yours......and not necessary, but a bonus if your name happens to be Benedicte!

It has an across the chest design with brown popper buttons, and is made from 65% polyester / 35% cotton mix, with aeration rivets within the armpits. Very well made.

The label (see photo) shows the size depending on where you are, but here are a few measurements which may help:

armpit to armpit- 60 cm (23.75")

collar to bottom- 74 cm (29")

sleeve length from armpit- 45 cm (17.75")

This is a classic French chore jacket, probably from the 60s, but doesn't look as though it has been worn for that long. Two side patch pockets, a breast pocket and also an inside pocket. Lovely old style collar with button cuffs. We found this on a sale in central rural France, and so is is definitely French, with a label 'Le Pelerin'.

This is a rare green Ricard pitcher, dating back to somewhere between 1930 to 1960. It's in perfect condition, and has markings on the base explained by this piece of information borrowed from the Web:

'The form number 830 is impressed on the base, along with the mark "Coulange St Jerome Marseille. Terre d'acier Saint Uze. Revol". Saint-Uze is the type of ceramic produced in the Drôme region of France, in and around the village of Saint Uze, from the early nineteenth century on.'

It holds a full litre of water. A very nice, and increasingly rare, piece of vintage French tableware for lovers of pastis.
