19th Century Country French Directoire Buffet was hand-crafted by talented artisans in a more rural setting, using hand tools like a brace & bit, fashioning their pegs with chisels and sandpaper to anchor the hand-fitted mortise & tenon joinery.  Creating a small footprint, it's ideal for heavy traffic areas or cozy niches.  Hand-carved embellishment includes grain reeding, fluting and diamond panels on the drawers and cabinet doors.  Created entirely from old growth red oak to last for centuries!
Circa 1820s
