19th Century French Renaissance Hunt Buffet is a classic representation of the genre, with captivating and realistic hand-carved details and sculpture across the entire facade.  Rendered from sold old-growth hand-select oak, it features a solid plank top with demilune gadrooning around the edge, overlooking the drawer tier.  The drawers are carved with grapevines with lions' heads serving as drawer pulls.  In between and flanking the drawers are three rosettes.  Fine molded detail appears all over the work providing a framework, with the cabinet doors being the central visual subject, flanked by pilasters on the corners lavished with classic corbels and bounty of the earth motifs in bold full relief.  The left cabinet door shows the results of a successful hunt with a gamebird hung with ribbon portrayed over vines found in the field.  The right shows a rabbit similarly displayed, both in full relief.  Demilune gadrooning adorns the base molding with bun feet for support.
