Carefully rendering this stately piece from expensive, exotic imported mahogany from the Americas, the artisans who crafted this Antique French Directoire Marble Top Buffet followed the dictates of the style to perfection!  Such buffets are not extremely common, especially when topped with charcoal-colored marble for a carefree yet elegant serving surface.  The clean lines of the facade are a result of using bookmatched crotch mahogany panels surrounded by clean molding with just a touch of gold highlighting.  Four cabinet doors are all one sees on the outside, but when opening the far left door a total of five drawers with inset brass pulls are revealed, creating a functionality that other designs cannot offer.  As is the case with any Directoire style piece, its simplicity of architecture allows it to work with almost any decor!

Circa 1900-1910.
Measures 40.5H x 90W x 19D.
