Antique French Louis XV Period Carved Oak Enfilade Buffet circa 1770
The handsome simplicity of this antique French oak buffet makes it ideal for the clean lines of modern interiors. The three cabinet doors all feature a rounded hourglass design carved from a solid slab of oak and set within a rectangular border of deeply incised moulding. The contrast between the curved and straight lines provides excellent visual impact almost of an architectural nature. This arrangement of multiple doors is known as an "enfilade" with the commoin term being a buffet. The front corners are cut at a fourty five degree angle and enclose a recessed panel the same height as the cabinet doors. Within the two panels is an elongated and raised section with curved ends that stylistically relates to the pattern within the three front cabinet doors. As the eye moves to the sides once again a recessed panel is used in the same proportion as the front cabinets and this continuity of height gives the entire antique buffet its sense of design cohesion. The top follows the same shape as the cabinet with the front corners set at an angle and shows the passage of time with its aged surface. All three cabinet doors fully open on brass hinges to reveal ample storage space doubled by the addition of a shelf. The keyholes are covered by Louis XV style brass escutcheons that protect the oak timber from the iron key when it is inserted. The superb patina of the hand waxed finish gives the oak its enchanting luster and enhances the overall desirability of this antique French oak buffet circa 1770.
