A French walnut tall buffet from the second half of the 19th century, with long partitioned drawer and two doors. Born during the later years of Emperor Napoleon III’s reign, this walnut buffet features a rectangular planked top, sitting above a long single drawer surrounded by a thin banding. This dovetailed drawer is simply adorned with two round brass pulls flanking a shield-shaped escutcheon, allowing the drawer to open and reveal a partitioned interior lined with red fabric on one side. Each door below is decorated with a raised panel and opens to two inner shelves offering a convenient storage area. The ensemble is raised on four slightly tapering feet, whose straight lines complement the linearity of the buffet beautifully. The quality of the wood grain, combined with the clean lines, will make this French tall walnut buffet circa 1870 (or earlier) an excellent choice for any living room or dining room. Perhaps topped with a pair of table lamps or a mirror.
