18th Century French Cobbler's Cart Painted by Ira Yeager


Whimsical 18th century French provincial vendor cobbler's cart featuring a zinc top painted by Ira Yeager (American 1938-2022) for his gallery in Calistoga, CA. Beloved Francophile, Yeager enjoyed painting antique French provincial furniture with period style art. This pine vendors cart is crafted with iron wheels, handles, and lock plates. Fully functioning with removable shelves inside. The top reads shoemaker bootmaker in French with a bust of the cobbler and depictions of French women's shoes. This cart was a display piece in the Yager Galerie Calistoga, CA. Wonderful piece of important folk art that could function as a table, bar cart, or objet.
