A remarkable painted walnut enfilade buffet in the Louis XIV style, circa 1900. A large central chamber is flanked by two smaller ones topped with drawers. All four doors are paneled and have arched tops with shaped indents, the drawer fronts have deeply incised border decoration and round brass knobs. Original ornamented hinge hardware and long, foliate swag key escutcheons. Heavily distresssed gray painting with scuffs and variable tones. An ogee bullnose profile trims out the wooden top, paneled arch top sides echo the doors on the front, and the plinth base has a lightly molded edge. Thick, rough cut boards make up the back of the piece. The central chamber has double doors that open out to reveal a space 32.5" wide and 17.5"deep, split by a single non-adjustable shelf with 19" clearance on top and 12.75"on the bottom. Both side chambers are 25" wide and 17" deep and have one non-adjustable shelf with 11.5" on top and 12.75" on bottom. The edges on all shelves have simple molding. The two drawers have interior space of 20" width, 16" length and 3.75" depth.
Condition: Heavily distressed paint. Wear consistent with age and use. Only one key but works on all doors.
