19th Century French Renaissance Revival Period Buffet is a splendid example of the genre, executed in old-growth white oak to last for centuries!  The boldly molded top overlooks an upper tier with two bold relief carvings of lions' heads serving as the drawer pulls, each flanked by avian and foliate bas relief.  Between the drawers and on each cornerpost appear winged cherubs again in bold relief for a stunning visual effect.  The top tier overlooks the pair of cabinet doors below, which are defined by fluted and subtly carved pilasters, and each of which feature elaborate Renaissance-inspired relief carvings centered with angels' heads.  Finely cast brass key guards add a nice visual touch.  Doors and drawers open to reveal cavernous storage, much more than is expected in a piece of this relative size.
Circa 1840s
