A grand French Louis XIV period three door oak buffet from the late 1700s or early 1800s. Golden oak with paneled arch doors, paneled drawers and sides with beveled edges. Beveled edge along the top and light molding along the bottom. The angled shape is called "a pans coupés" thus the depth is 15.5" on either side and 21" deep in the center. Three drawers along the top and three locking doors open up to great interior storage. Interior measures 13" deep at the sides and 17.5" deep at the center. The fixed interior shelf runs the full length, with 12.5" clearance on top and 14.5" space on the bottom. The piece has its original back that has been darkly stained, as has the interior. Original hinges and escutcheons. The drawers are three inches deep and vary in size, due to the shape of the buffet. The piece rests on straight post feet.
Condition: Various small nicks and superficial scratches, some filled spots. The shelf does not extend all the way to the front, on the left there is a 1.25" space before the frame and 2.5" on the right. The wood has been refinished and the handles and locks have been changed.
