Louis XVI Style Antique French Elm Buffet circa 1840


This exceptional antique French buffet enfilade showcases superb cabinet making. The beauty of the book matched elm extends across the entire façade with the drawers, cabinet doors as well as the plinth base highlighted with hand selected elm. Notice how the three drawers have a single section of elm that frames the escutcheon (the lock plate that guides the key) flanked by the patterned grain of the elm. All four cabinet doors have a chevron pattern created by the grain of the elm that gives powerful visual effect. The top extends slightly wider than the cabinet as does the plinth base and serves to frame the section with the drawers and cabinet doors. It is exciting to see such careful attention to detail in the craftsmanship of this piece as well as the gorgeous patina acquired through years of waxing and polishing. The entire interior of this antique buffet is available for storage as all the doors and drawers open fully for ease of access.
