Antique barracks setts in limestone & gritstone
Antique barracks setts in limestone & gritstone : This exceptional consignment of antique reclaimed setts is full of character, and could grace a much older property than 19th century due to its historic appearance. The provenance of these hard limestone and gritstone cobblestones is from the parade grounds of a French military barracks at Metz, in France’s Lorraine region. However after the Franco-Prussian War and according to the Treaty of Frankfurt of 1871, the city became part of the German Empire, serving as capital of the Bezirk Lothringen until reverting to France at the end of WW1. The 19th century barracks built by the Germans were by the 1930s being used by the 507th French tank regiment commanded by Lieutenant-colonel Charles de Gaulle.
