A lovely old late Victorian era china buffet, still in the original finish. Most likely made about 1900 - 1910. It is made from quartersawn oak and has hand carved accents on the mirror and lower doors. The curved glass china section has 3 adjustable shelves with plate grooves, and could also be used to hold books. The other section has 2 drawers and a storage area behind the double doors. The top drawer has a divider and is lined with felt for silverware.
We decided not to refinish this piece, so it does have the old finish. After more than 100 years the finish is still in good condition, but does have the usual light wear from use that you would associate with an old piece of furniture. The carving is intact. The curved glass door locks and comes with a working key. The beveled mirror is becoming ghostly (hazy) with age - a look that we ourselves like. Makes those facial wrinkles look a little softer - yes? Well, maybe.
The overall height is 76 inches, width at the widest point is 49 inches and depth is 19 inches. The shelves on the china side are 18 inches wide and 14 inches deep. The lower storage area behind the double doors is 27 inches wide and 15 inches deep.
