But that’s not all I saw there! I also spotted these:
A very pretty set of oak and walnut inlay furniture, hand-crafted in the 1930s by a man with an interesting name: Anthime Leveque.
He was born in Quebec circa 1880, but lived most of his life in the nearby town of Lead, South Dakota, where he worked as a carpenter for the Homestake Mine.
Where does his uncommon first name come from?
Anthime [AWN-teem, roughly*] is a French form of Anthimus, which was the name of several early saints. Anthimus is based on the Greek word anthimos, meaning “flowery” (from anthos, “flower”).
*Here’s a French speaker pronouncing Anthime.
