19th Century, French Louis XV Carved Walnut Two-Door Buffet from Provence
This elegant, antique fruit wood sideboard was carved in Southern France, circa 1890. The Classic sideboard exemplifies the Louis XV style with a heavy presence, dramatic lines and intricate floral and foliage carvings throughout. The cabinet stands on small cabriole legs ending with escargot feet, over a scalloped apron heavily decorated with a center urn filled with floral and leaf motifs. The cabinet features a pair of drawers dressed with heavy forged iron handles and matching escutcheons over hand carved scrolling foliate decor. The cabinet has two paneled doors dressed with oversized iron hinges and large decorative openwork escutcheons; the doors with a stationary center panel, open to interior shelving for ultimate storage. The scalloped top surface is the perfect place to display porcelain objects, frames, and more. The buffet is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns a well-maintained rich walnut patina. Key included. Measures: 51.25″ W x 23.75″ D x 38″ H.
