More Fauxtiques:

FrenchEclectic on the front page with vintage french dining table

Treasury photo linky from craftcult

Shop :

Description: “Old Louis XV Style Dining table with base refinished in a pale grey finish. Has 2 leaves to seat 10 comfortably. Circa 1940. Imported from France.”

Table also available at Cottage Haven Interiors as Vintage Louis XV Style Dining Table They describe it as ”
This vintage Louis XV Style Dining table features two leaves that expand to seat 10 comfortably. The base of this table has been refinished in a pale gray. Circa 1940. ”

Wow! Same table, same photos but one is a faux finished table and one is Imported from France.

I suspect both interior designers buy from the same supplier.

A reader wanted to know why these shops were duplicates:

TheRosySnail has items with a watermark on them from the other store? They are also both from Temple, TX. Why duplicate a shop?
