Beautiful antique French buffet, from the Restoration, or Restauration period which ran from 1815-1820. Unpretentious, sort of characterizes the Restoration style furniture, with cleaner lines and simpler details from the previous Empire period. The paw feet and mahogany wood, are quick indicators of this particular style and this antique French buffet, hits all the right marks. Straight, uncomplicated lines, exquisite brass details, book-matched mahogany panels and capped off with classic paw feet. The medium grey marble stone top, is original to the French buffet and has not seen prior repairs. The wood itself, only required a light French polish to bring it back from the dead and had not been restored, but rather lead a charmed life for the last 150 years.
