Antique Italian Renaissance Two-Piece Bar ~ Counter in Walnut will make an unforgettable statement in your family room or entertainment room!  Sold as a set, it includes two virtually identical grand buffets with one including an exquisitely carved backsplash with gryffins and corbels supporting an upper cabinet tier.  Carved from select walnut in its entirety, its impressive carved and sculpted detail is too abundant to fully cover herein, but a sampling starts with the back unit designed to go against the wall.  The upper tier is boldly molded on top with a foliate-carved bonnet flanked by acanthus leaf corbels, which is situated above four cabinet doors flanked with classical figures on each side in bold full relief.  The outermost of the four upper cabinet doors feature angelic faces surrounded by stylized foliate detail, with the inner two complementing the same surround but centered with figures in different poses.  The sphinx-like supports on each side envelope the serving surface, backed by intricately carved panels with two corbels carved with gargoyles adding visual interest.  Fishscale bordering around the top of the serving surface overlooks three spacious drawers with carved facades and large carved pulls.  The drawer tier appears over the four cabinet doors below, which are flanked by more sculptural figures, with the doors carved with gryffins and elaborate stylized foliate detail.  A bold base with large lions' paw feet completes the design.  As for the front unit, it is identical to the lower section of the back unit in most aspects, but consists of only three cabinet doors with amazing complementary full relief detail.  The two together create a breathtaking expression of the revival of the Renaissance style which will enable you to create a memorable one-of-a-kind room!
Circa early 1900s
