This Antique French Hunt Renaissance Buffet - Vaisselier was carved by master French craftsmen in the region around Rouen, and features game from the hunt in glorious full relief on each door panel, complemented by bounty of the earth motifs in abundance on the crown and backsplash supports.  The boldlly molded, mitered cornerposts below have also been lavished with corbels topandbottom.  Fully laden grapevines were pierce-carved to adorn the drawers and serve as their pulls.

Truly an excellent example of the woodworker's art!

Circa 1850s.
