Sculpted from select French walnut, this round-sided buffet features full relief depictions of bounty-of-the-earth themes called by the Italians della robia. Additional motifs include symbolisms for the grape and wheat harvests along with various related accouterments. The double meaning in the carvings represents the elements of the Last Supper. Even the rounded side doors have a bountiful fruit harvest carving in bold full relief. Original turned wood pendant drawer pulls mounted on raised panels with shell & foliate flourishes add a nice touch.
Circa 1870.
