French 19th Century Oak Confiturier

French 19th Century Oak Confiturier

A lovely oak confiturier from 19th century France. Originally used in kitchens to store canned jellies and jams, these small cabinets are often modestly embellished. This exceptional piece has influences from the more showy Louis XV style. The piece has a single drawer above its single, lockable door. The door closes before a single fixed drawer for out-of-site storage and is hung on its original steel barrel hinge. The facade features wonderfully shaped carvings, beautiful burl walnut found on the drawer, door, and apron. There are lovely rosaces found on the apron and surrounding the turned wood knob in the drawer. The confiturier rests on short, cabriole legs. c.1890
