Furniture crafting on the Continent has always been in a constant state of innovation blended with tradition, and this exceptional piece is a perfect example! One can store enormous amounts of family keepsakes in the four door buffet below, with two spacious drawers, all lavished with fully laden grapevines and wheat motifs in relief across the facade. One also can enjoy a modest serving surface at the center do display the primary course for the evening's repast. In addition, open shelves just above that allow one to openly display specially selected pieces of family memorabilia, while the glassed in display cases on each side allow protected display.
Very functional, indeed!
The carvings on the buffet are complemented on the upper tier, with a subtle arched center crown accented with the traditional flower basket.
