ENGLISH ROCOCO REVIVAL CARVED WALNUT BUFFET DEUX CORPS
Circa 1880
Item # 809PEM15Q 


A very finely carved and crafted buffet deux corps from the last quarter of the 19th century, it is English but designed in the taste of the French with the heavy influence of Rococoism.  This is most evident in the use of carved acanthus decorations, C-scrolls in the integral mouldings and panel spandrels, the cyma curved columns that raise the upper cabinet and the scrolled-toe French feet that the body rests over.  A fine patina has developed in the dense walnut, the wood having mellowed beautifully throughout from polishing and wear over the last century.  The craftsmanship is top-notch with crisp hand dovetailing in the drawers, superb carvings throughout and handsome paneled joinery in the back.  It is a powerful piece that defines a room.

Measurements:  98" H x 62" W x 23" D

Condition Report:
Tip of arches on crest may have been reduced, though the oxidization is nearly black so this would be very old if not originally designed to flatten out.  Loss of applied rococo element on middle-left blind-door of upper cabinet.  No working keys.  The upper sides have glass shelves with some minor scuff/chipping - these originally would likely have been wood.   Minor age appropriate wear, discoloration and scuff as expected.
