This small 18th-century buffet from Auvergne, France, circa 1750, is a testament to the timeless elegance of Louis XV design. Recently found in France “dans son jus”, this little buffet has been left in its original, naturally distressed state. Crafted from mixed woods, the piece showcases a low profile and arbalete shaped apron, which contributes to its charming appeal. The back panel, made from a repurposed panel, demonstrates an ingenious use of materials, while the shaped drawer fronts add a touch of sophistication. Its steel hardware offers a delightful contrast to the cleaned oak, enhancing the overall aesthetic of the buffet.
CONDITION: Antique condition with old repairs, old wood worm. Previously stripped with traces of original finish. Fills and repairs evident. Doors are now magnetized (no lock). See photos.
