It is truly a rare event when we come across a buffet from Brittany on this scale, especially at such a special price! Hand-crafted from solid French red oak, it features a step-front center section dominated by cameo carvings of the lord & lady of the manoir, attired in typical raiment of the region in past centuries. Note the detail in the backgrounds of the cameos. Additional figures are seen on the side door panels, topped with a pierced quarter round wagon wheel motif complete with turned spindles. Rosettes span the entire width of the drawer tier, accentuated by cast bronze pulls. It's a work of art in wood!
Circa 1870s.
Measures 42.5 x 86.5 x 20.
