Early 19th Century French Charles X Confiturier ~ Cabinet was hand-crafted from dense, old-growth oak, and features a tailored expression of the Empire style prevalent during the very brief reign of Charles X.  Simple corbles atop the cornerposts directly underneath raised diamond-shaped forms which flank the single full width drawer provide the only adornment to the woodwork, with cast brass key guards added at some point in its history for just a touch of embellishment.  Tailored panels on the sides and on the single door exuded austerity, and when one looks closely one can see the square-pegged mortise & tenon joinery indicative of complete hand-fabrication.  Even the solid planks of the back side which appear to be pine or sycamore, are testaments to the techniques handed down from generation to generation.  Ideal for providing a little surface area and compact storage for cozy niches, smaller rooms, or particular places.  The natural finish provides a lighter coloration perfect for blending with 21st century decors.
Circa 1830s
