Ideal for the masculine decor, 19th Century French Renaissance "Hunt" Buffets such as this exceptional example are getting harder to find each year!  Carved in glorious full relief on the front appear scenes from the hunt and a fishing expedition in remarkable lifelike detail, flanked by full sculptures of cherubs with naturalistic headwear.  Grapevine and grape clusters adorn the drawer facades and form the handles, all sculpted from one block of wood, with elaborate foliate embellishments and detailed molding detail throughout for a stunning effect.
Circa 1850s
