This is truly a very rare enfilade (buffet) from the period of Louis XIV ( 1643-1715) and is from the Bresse region of France. It has been constructed with European Elmwood and Elmwood veneer which is absolutely beautiful. The construction of this piece has been well thought out with respect to its geometric and rounded lines. The rectangular shape has been enhanced with rounded edges and moldings on the front softening any severity. The center of the buffet has a "galbe" (outwardly curved) drawer and door with two drawers and doors flanking it. The rounded side panels, which are stepped out from the body, are exaggerated so they are noticed but not in line with either side. The sides have asymmetrical, incised large c-scrolls. Beautiful motifs from the period adorn the front doors, including two small Fleur de Lys on the center door. A deeply carved stepped out pediment follows the bodies’ lines. All this rests upon thickly carved quatrefoil feet at the front and two block feet at the back.

This important and unusual Louis XIV enfilade will be the focal point in a room.

CONDITION: Very good antique condition commensurate with age of early 1700’s. Minor losses of wood, rubs, nicks, age separations, traces of old wood worm.
