19th Century French Renaissance Buffet was sculpted from dense, old-growth oak with glorious full relief depictions of the wheat harvest on the left, and the grape harvest on the right.  Such references also alluded to the bread and wine for which France is so famous, and on a spiritual note are symbolic of the Last Supper.  Set upon a brilliantly molded framework, the carved door panels are framed by clockwise and counter-clockwise barley twist columns, with a boldly outlined surface above only adding to the allure.
