19th Century Country French Buffet is a splendid piece that exudes rustic charm on a larger scale!  Hand-crafted from old-growth oak, it features two spacious drawers with a separate cutlery drawer in the center, all accessed by brass bale pulls.  Each drawer is carved with stylized rosettes and fluting.  Complementary carvings appear on the cabinet doors below, which feature a tailored, rectilinear design and double-tiered framework.  The center stile shines forth with a basket bursting with flowers and foliates above a pediment with rosettes which, like the molding around the stile, match the adjacent cabinet doors.  The drawers and especially the doors open to reveal a cavernous interior able to store copious amounts of family keepsakes, with a generous surface above perfect for display and serving.  Bold molding above and below complete the look.
Circa 1870s
