We discovered these beautiful pond boats after a Parisian outing to Luxembourg Gardens with our children. Based in Brittany (northwest) France, the Tirot family has been handcrafting the most beautiful wooden toy boats in the world since 1946. Tirot is a member of Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company), a mark of recognition in France given to a select group of companies (including Hermes, Baccarat Crystal, Chanel, La Cornue) for their dedication to quality and preservation of traditional artisan skills. Each wooden boat is beautifully made and is destined to become a cherished heirloom.
