The timeless architecture known as the Henri II style transcends the millenia, realizing a revival during the waning years of the Napoleon III reign, as evidenced by this excellent example. Hand-crafted from select French walnut, it features four pair of fluted columns that flank geometrically designed door panels centered with boldly carved, stylized shell and foliates. The centerpiece features a nobleman's bust in glorious full relief! Cleverly converted to conceal a flat panel TV that quietly rises from within, while the top remains level, it has been adorned with bold molding to create a stunning statement when in use, or in its original visage with no one realizing what is held inside!
Circa 1860s.
