Location: Baton Rouge

Only an extremely talented master sculptor could produce such a work of art, all rendered in select French walnut to last for generations! Boldly carved cornerposts topped with elaborate Corinthian corbels flank the cabinet doors, which are carved with a three dimensional effect through an archway with a winged cherub presiding over symbols significant to two families who were honored by this piece. The drawers are beautiful but different as well, signifying the union of two into one, all raised on tapered columns with a display shelf at the base. All evidence points to the fact that this is a one-of-a-kind gift commissioned for a newlywed couple or perhaps to commemorate an anniversary.
