Hand-crafted by the master artisans of Normandie from indigenous French oak, this superlative antique Country French buffet features the highly adorned plate rack above making it a vaisselier that will command center stage in your room! The scrolled crown with carved floral and foliates is topped with five turned finials, and presides over three tiers of shelving atop the generously sized buffet surface below. A pair of drawers and cabinets have been carved to complement the crown and apron, and open to reveal superb storage. Musical instruments augment the wildflowers and foliates, all carved directly into the wood itself. Steel barrel hinges, keyguards and pulls complete the look.
