French, Fabulous - Not Black Forest (you know we LOVE the old hand carved wood!), this is a fabulous large matching pair of buffet or cabinet doors, complete with a lock (no key as I write, but we'll try all of ours and annotate if we get one to work the lock). A gorgeous deep bas relief carved Neo-renaissance lion's head on each one. You'll want these to build in your locking wine cabinet right into your kitchen cabinetry if you'd like, or into a wall. Look at that hand carved oak, so Country French it makes me think of the late great Charles Faudree, designer extraordinaire, whose Country French accents sometimes came from our collections, and who we miss. I can just see this built into a cabinet in a bathroom in his homes (or mine!). I love these as the doors for recessed cabinets here or there, particularly bathroom and kitchen. You'll find the perfect spot! With that bold lion motif, so beautifully done, I can't wait to see what one of you will make of this pair. The cabinet doors are each 25.75" tall and 23.5" wide, 1.5" thick hardwood, not veneer, of course. Heavy as can be! Don't they just beg to be made up to open and reveal a wine rack-fitted interior? I think so, too!
Very good to excellent condition. This set of 2 is stunning! Fabulous and heavy hardwood you just can't get anymore, and entirely hand carved. It's a late 1800s to earliest 1900s set from a large elegant buffet, I'd guess. Just in from Paris with a big shipment of these - look for others (sold separately). They're all my favorites! Full measurements are noted on our large detailed photos, too. But these are massive. Heavy. Luxuriously fabulous as they come! I find no chips to report, but I admit I am bedazzled looking at these two, so you look them over well. You can't possibly get solid hardwood old growth oak carved for this price today, you know. Hardware is wonderful, looks like the lock works, and while we have no key at listing, I have a stash of them and we'll do our best to match one up. I'll annotate the listing if so, and add a bit to price.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
