Now *thats* a piece of furniture

A couple more pictures from the Open Air Museum, from the farmhouse shown in the last post. The farmstead is from Eiderstedt, South Schleswig (now a part of the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein. Campaign furniture is one thing, but these certainly are not transportable, in any sense of the word. The first piece is likely a wardrobe, the second one a dining room cupboard. These pieces were common in the Germanic and Scandinavian countries, yet sadly most of them are relegated to museums these days.
