Louis XV Period Cherrywood Buffet à Deux Corps in Regence Style, France c.1760
A striking Régence style Louis XV period carved cherry wood buffet à deux corps from France c. 1760 now having a lighted interior for display. The extraordinary carving across the front facade of this cabinet showcases the best of French cabinet making expertise. Please notice the fineness of the carved designs as well as the original iron hardware on the hinges as well as the escutcheons that conceal the keyholes in the upper and lower cabinet. The excellence of the workmanship is indicative of the upper class home this piece was originally made for and its usefulness for both the display and storage of quality items is as useful today as it was back in the eighteenth century. The patina of the timber possesses an luminous glow and warmth that contains the passage of time over the last two centuries and invites the touch of a hand to feel its amazing surface. It is important to remember that this cabinet was created during a period when the only available light at night came from a fire blazing in the hearth and the candles lighted within the room. Therefore this highly decorated facade was designed to take advantage of the natural warmth cast by the rising and falling flames.
