Antique French Louis XVI Painted Marble Top Buffet is a superlative expression of tailored neoclassical architecture and embellishment, with raised relief carvings of a basket bursting with flowers on the center cabinet door, which has been stepped out from the main casework.  Hand-crafted from fine imported mahogany, it features side cabinets with raised door panels adorned with the staff and foliates intertwined, and wildflowers in bas relief appearing on the three drawers above.  Brass hardware adds a nice touch, but four particular aspects set this keepsake apart ~ the step-front design which is traffic-friendly, the distressed painted finish for a delightful casual effect that enhances the hand-carved detail, and finally the exquisite contoured and beveled marble that follows the step-front casework below.

Circa 1920s
