19th Century French Walnut Louis XVI China Buffet is a marvel of neoclassical styling, with exceptional floral and foliate relief sculpture appearing on the top and bottom door panels.  A generous serving surface adds to the capacious storage to make them as useful as they are beautiful to behold.  No fewer than 16 beveled panes on the center upper door allow one to show off family heirlooms or prized possessions.  Capacious storage is afforded in the side cabinets above and yawning cabinets below, with three drawers between, each sporting fluted facades and amazingly detailed cast bronze pulls.  The artistry with which the craftsmen sculpted the floral, ribbon and foliate motifs in amazing relief is truly admirable, with a level of detail only attained by the finest artisans in the field!  The sumptuous hand-selected French walnut only makes the work more visually appealing.
