French Art Deco Period Burl Walnut Buffet with Black Marble Top


French Art Deco period burl walnut buffet with black marble top. The spectacular pattern of the walnut veneer used to sheathe every surface of this buffet is breathtaking and showcases the exceptional skill of early Twentieth Century cabinet makers in France. Please note the manner in which the walnut is laid across the cabinet doors to accentuate its matching pattern that immediately engages the eye. The sleek profile of this piece is accentuated by the curved corners and the recessed slope of the supporting plinth base beneath the cabinet doors. Here the walnut is used to emphasize the horizontal and vertical direction of the cabinet itself. The original silvered metal escutcheons they guide the key into the door locks remain on the cabinet and their architectural shape is purely Art Deco. This buffet was created to be seen from both the front and each side and the dramatic sweep of the curved lines coupled with the intricate movement of the burl walnut combine to provide a striking effect. Both of the cabinet doors fully open to reveal an interior storage space and retain the original full-length brass hinges that secure each door to the body of the piece. The top of the buffet retains its original marble top with a pattern that complements the walnut and the durability of the marble enhances its usefulness as a serving piece.
