103.5 x 69.5 x 19.5; buffet 39.5

Location: Dallas

This ingenious piece was designed to dominate a wall, yet provide all the features one could need in a dining room or kitchen, all in one! Crafted in the typical fruitwood with burl walnut panels technique mastered by the artisans of Bresse, it features upper display shelves, upper crystal cabinets, and of course a lovely long case clock whose dial face extends above the crown making it easy to see from any part of the room. The lower buffet sports two spacious cabinets and no less than six drawers so the entire family's collection of dishes, serving pieces, flatware, cutlery, and glassware could be stored in one piece. Forged steel keyguards, drawer pulls and barrel hinges complete the look. (as is the case with all our clocks, it will be in running condition when it leaves the showroom)
Circa 1860s.
