19th Century French Renaissance Buffet with Carved Backsplash is a truly breathtaking work of the sculptor's art!  The generously sized buffet is topped with a backsplash fitted with five carved panels set in carved frameworks and flanked by pairs of carved columns which support the overhanging crown with carved apron.  Demilune gadrooning encircles the surface, with four drawers and as many cabinets below, all graced by the sculptor's hand.  Motifs are derived from nature yet exhibit a geometric influence, and are too numerous to mention here.  This is simply a piece that must be studied at length to be fully appreciated for all its glory.  Brass hinges shaped like horse's heads support the cabinet doors, with pierced brass guards and bale pulls fitted to the drawers.  Destined to become a focal point in any room into which it is placed!
Circa 1870s
