But wait, there’s yet more French Prudential furniture! These are all from the same East coast city, all posted by the same person. In fact, I have a more than sneaking suspicion that the person posting these items is the same person who posted three French Prudential couches and a china “closet” a while back. Sadly, there are no pictures with these four (!) listings, so my exploration into this previously unknown furniture design period will have to continue to determine what the actual qualities of “French Prudential” furniture are.

    its still covered by its plastic

    Well, one out of two isn’t bad. I’m relieved that at least they didn’t write “its still covered by it’s plastic”.

    Also, my best guess as to the meaning of “French Prudential” is “French Provincial”.

    I’ve figured as much, but I’m just entertained by the notion of “French Prudential”. Elsewhere I’ve suggested that “Belgian Geico” is a superior design period.

    I’ve figured it out!
    Wife: Honey, guess what? While you were out of town, I hired Uncle Joey’s decorator and we re-decorated the whole house in French Prudential!
    Husband: What the f*** is French Prudential?
    Wife: You know, white and blue…and gold stuff. It’s historic or something! Very classy.
    Husband: Get rid of it.
    Wife: But I—
    Husband: Get. Rid. Of. It.

    I read the second one as fresh prudential. It made me chuckle.

    What I want to know is how did they gauge this:
    “hardly used only about 4 times”

    How does one know how many times a piece of furniture is used?
    Do they have little turnstiles on them?
