19th Century Country French Painted Bookcase ~ Buffet a Deux Corps hails from Normandie, where any local resident will tell you is the most beautiful countryside on earth!  Dramatic arched bonnet is adorned with a carved basket full of flowers overlooking the upper tier which houses two glazed doors fitted with elaborately detailed and carved frameworks.  The carved lower cabinet is a work of art unto itself, with the entire affair enhanced by the patinaed painted finish.  Such pieces occupied a place of honor and were a source of pride for the more affluent citizens of Normandie, and remain so to this day!
Circa 1840s
