Grand Early 19th Century Country French Cherry Wood Buffet is a magnificent example of hand-crafted tradition!  Created on a large scale using indigenous old-growth cherry harvested from trees that no longer bore fruit, its color and grain are truly beautiful to behold.  Although it measures just under eight feet in width, it's less than 20" deep to facilitate minimal impact on your floor plan.  The design includes two regular drawers and two cutlery drawers with four spacious cabinets below, with the center two cabinet doors creating an arch.  Classic French scrolls in the framework surround the raised panels carefully hand-cut to follow the contours.  Carved embellishments appear between the drawers and on the undulating scrollwork of the apron, which is supported by scrolled legs tipped with escargot feet.  Steel barrel hinges and key guards provide protection and allow the doors to open very wide for easy access.  Note the double-pegged mortise & tenon construction, and the hand-hewn planks of the rear of the piece.  Such historically significant pieces are only getting more rare with each passing year!
