Antique Oak Buffet Shelf from France

H=46 1/2, W=52 5/8, D=19 3/4

An Antique French Plate Rack (Credence) on Feet from the Lorraine Region of France-European Oak – Good Antique Condition – Rubs to wood commensurate with age – Mid to Late 1700’s.

This rare antique French oak hand made plate rack (Credence), originally done by a cabinetmaker in the Lorraine Region of France, would have been placed upon a buffet.  The buffets , vaisseliers,(vessel holder) deux corps  and credences made in the Lorraine Region are a style unto their own and easily identifiable because of this.   The cornice has carved out demilunes to the front and sides with a simple stepped out molding on the top.  There are three shelves,  two with plate rails of different ornamentation.  The ornamentation  has wooden cutouts in panels of stars, hearts and a stylized column. The third shelf down extends out further for larger items and has ornamentation on the front  of demilune cutouts for the plate rail. Beneath this, is a half enclosed cutout panel for items containing food that needs to be kept sheltered or warm.  All this rests upon  stylized elongated side panel feet.
