On the design side: the carving has the shell motif combined with a floral flair, the top crown carving is particularly outstanding, heavily curved and fluted shape to the top, stepped out front on the buffet with a curved front, the stepped back plate racks really add to a very 3 dimensional feel, the plate shelves even have a fluted edge, knees of the cabriole feet are decorated with a shell carving. Some characteristics show both a decorative element as well as quality of construction: Beveled panels on the front and sides, beautiful quarter sawn (tiger) oak was used, and hand beveled glass decorates the top cabinets. Further elements just show time and effort in the workmanship of it: adjustable shelves on the bottom, the top was made to allow for normal wood shrinkage without damage (incredibly rare), dovetailed drawers, and double plate racks. The top separates from the base for moving purposes. The buffet surface looks wonderful even underneath the top cabinet.
Have seen those who would like an even taller item hang the top piece higher against the wall to allow a space between the two components. It is an extremely beautiful and very well made item.
This is an original piece not a later reproduction. It dates from right after World War II. Check out our other items! It has been previously restored including refinishing both inside and out.
If there was any damage, it was professionally repaired. The wear is normal and appropriate to an item of this age.
Small damage on the corner of one of the buffet doors that is photographed. If you look down on it from a second story, the very top does show repaired damage not visible in most situations. There are reflections in the photographs.
