18th Century Country French Provencial Buffet Deux Corps ~ Bookcase was crafted by the master artisans of Normandie, and features their trademark celebration of the lush floral and foliates that abound in nature there, expressed by talented sculptors in glorious full relief centered on the crown, on each upper glazed door above and below the glass, and on the lower cabinets.  Intricately hand-carved molded detail also appears in profusion providing a framework for the carvings and cabinetry.  The carvings in beautifully scrolled frameworks that appear just below the glazing on each door depict musical instruments and olive branches. Sculpted from indigenous old-growth oak to last for centuries!
Circa 1780s
