Crafted by artisans of the 18th Century from selected planks of dense, old-growth French oak and comprising of two separate sections this lovely buffet à deux-corps features a moulded cornice overhanging two upper doors. The eye is immediately drawn to the graciously scrolled forms that decorate the upper section of doors, below which are fielded panels. These doors open to reveal two inner shelves offering copious storage opportunities; the lower section showcases further storage and offers a single shelf. The sides also consist of fielded panels. There are occasional hints of the original paint in very small areas but it is offered in a stripped back to the raw oak state. The ensemble is raised on a shaped frieze with four short feet.
There is copious storage room throughout this chic item with its wonderful hinges, pulls and escutcheons and there is also an original lock and working key; all of which tell of its quality. With its pleasing proportions and grand scale this antique period buffet à deux-corps reflects a restrained elegance that provides an overall style that is complementary to many décors and can serve equally well wherever it pleases you to place it such as in any principal reception room of your home, office or bedroom.
