French 19th Century Walnut Empire Buffet
An extraordinarily handsome walnut Empire period buffet from 19th century France. This antique buffet features two lockable doors that close before an interior cavity that is outfitted with a single fixed shelf. These doors are flanked by double column pilasters that all have brass capitals and bases: iconic of the Empire style. Empire period brass ormolu also graces the apron and skirt of this beautiful antique with brass shield escutcheons found on the doors. Large scale and unparalleled patina give this piece distinction and ensures it will not go unnoticed.
