A French Louis XIII style dark walnut confiturier cabinet from the mid-19th century. This French confiturier was born in the early stages of the Second Empire with Napoleon III at the head of France. The confiturier (small cupboard dedicated to storing the "confitures", jambs, jellies and preserves) features a single door, carved with geometrical motifs, reminiscent of the Louis XIII period. This door opens to reveal two inner shelves. The ensemble is raised on four bun feet whose rounded lines balance the general linear Silhouette beautifully. Placed anywhere in a home, this small cabinet, circa 1850 is a problem solver and its discreet elegance will enliven any space perfectly.
