A French Louis XV period cherry buffet à deux-corps from the mid-18th century with original hardware. This French cabinet features a bonnet top surmounting two doors with carved panels and delicate c-scrolls. These small scrolled motifs are repeated throughout the structure, thus creating a perfect sense of harmony on the facade. The lower section, which is deeper than the upper cabinet, comprises two drawers sitting atop two lower doors. The curly décor is echoed once more. The hardware, which is original, adds to the Rococo feel of the piece. The ensemble is raised on scrolled feet in the front, while the scalloped skirt is marked in its centre with a larger C-scroll motif, creating a perfect visual punctuation to the piece. With its tall, elegant Silhouette and beautiful cherrywood patina, this French, 1750s Louis XV period buffet à deux-corps will bring a distinguished presence to any home, from a living room to a bedroom.
