Code 415-57 Antique Louis XV Style Buffet de Chasse
This stunning antique French Buffet de Chasse (Circa 1900) has two drawers and a beautifully shaped front and sides, with a shaped original piece of rouge marble on top. There are s-curves on the sides with the backs of the sides extending out further than the front. Because the shape of the front is referred to as "galbee" or serpentine, and there is an elegant marble on top, many would consider this a Buffet De Chasse. The motifs are prominently displayed at the top of each panel and feature scrolled shells, gadrooned leaves and scrolling vines and flowers. The rounded sides have shells and florets at the top and bottoms. The shaped base goes to the floor. The piece has been stripped and white washed at some point in time. There is one key for all locks. It can also be said that this piece has characteristics of carvings from Liege.
CONDITION: Very good condition. Minor loss of to some motifs; previous restorations to marble..
