Antique French Painted Oak Louis Philippe Buffet a Deux Corps Cabinet France circa 1850

The handsome Neoclassical lines of this antique French tall buffet a deux corps cabinet from France circa 1850 is notable for the restrained carving seen on both the upper and lower cabinet doors. Created during the reign of Louis Philippe (King of France 1830-1848) this antique French storage cabinet features two cabinet doors in the upper and lower sections with the three drawers placed above the lower doors. Please notice the angular profile with the front corners being set at a fourty five degree angle to the front and sides as well as the substantial crown that flares out at the top of the cabinet. This piece has a special name in France known as a "buffet à deux corps" meaning a buffet in two parts as opposed to a low buffet. The painted finish is quite appealing and enhances the applied carving and moulding seen on the front of all four cabinet doors especially the sculptural fleur-de-lys at the top of the top cabinet doors. The entire antique French buffet cabinet is elevated on four shaped feet giving it a sense of grace and lightness and interest as it may be approached from the sides as well as the front with equal appeal. All of the doors and drawers may be opened to reveal a wonderful quantity of storage space. Please be sure to enlarge and zoom on all the photographs to see the great details that show the excellent French cabinet making.
