Antique French Louis XV Style Painted Oak Buffet circa 1875

This handsome antique French oak buffet from France circa 1875 features a wonderful painted finish applied to take advantage of the graphic curved decoration. Because the buffet has three drawers and three cabinet doors it was created to offer a maximum amount of storage space in addition to being a beautiful element of the interior design in a home. Please notice that the top serving surface even has the original plate groove used for the display of large platters as the groove keeps the lower edge of each platter in a secure position. The overall impression of this French buffet is one of symmetry and balance. The arched panel on the centre door is matched by the sloped panels seen on the left and right doors with the orientation of the moulding flowing away from the centre. The front cabriole legs are joined by a gently undulating apron whose outline flows seamlessly when it meets the leg. This shaped apron continues along both sides as they are an important part of the entire presentation. The front corners of the buffet and the sections between the cabinet doors and drawers are recessed and again defined by the contrast in paint colour. Both the sides are emphasized with a pair of square recessed panels that add visual definition and interest. The clean and lyrical pattern of the different parts of this painted antique buffet make this a very easy cabinet to place in a contemporary interior.
