This handsome 19th Century Italian Gothic Painted Buffet ~ Cabinet was hand-crafted from solid walnut, then given a gilded and painted finish and finally lavished with brass hinges and keyguards for a truly unique look!  Intricate Gothic motifs appear between the painted images of lords and ladies on the facade, with Gothic columns on the top corners set at 45 degrees, and face on for the lower tier, which flanks a full width shelf.  Such cabinets were designed to store the prized personal possessions of the Lord and Lady of the Villa.  Ideal as a platform for a large flat panel TV!
Note the natural fissure on the lower shelf which has been professionally filled.
Circa 1850s
