Antique Liegoise Country French Buffet ~ Linen Press is a remarkable example of the incredibly high quality of furnishings produced in the storied region around Liege.  A manufacturing and marketing center for hundreds of years, it lies in the French speaking southeastern portion of what is today called Belgium.  The traditions of the finest hand-craftsmanship predate the last several geopolitical designations, with techniques that produced sturdy pieces from the local old-growth oak.  This example combines styling influence from the Louis XIII, Louis XIV and Louis XV styles, spanning over two centuries of artistic expression in wood.  The wood has been painstakingly stripped using our proprietary process that retains the natural patina of the wood and presents a soft presence in the room.  Mitered corners and a step-front center section produce visual appeal from all angles.  Two commodious cabinets and a total of six spacious drawers attain a functionality that makes it extremely versatile.  Cast brass key guards accentuate the facade, which includes a center tier of bowfront drawers carved with stylized shell and fine bordering.  The same motif appears on the upper outmost drawers, the cornerposts, and expanded on a larger scale appearing on the cabinet doors.  Both the multi-tiered beveled top and the lavishly adorned apron below conform to the intricate contours of the casework, the latter of which features cross hatching and complementary hand-carved shell and foliate designs, all supported by four boldly carved lions' paws for a truly timeless impact!
