Richly Carved Oak Buffet


A masterfully hand-carved solid oak buffet with a carved boar-hunt pediment over two open shelves with harvest and griffin supports above a two-door cupboard, all covered with richly detailed and bold moldings. The fine quality of the piece is evident in both the realistic and virtuosic treatment of the figures, which appear almost alive, and also in the details of the foliage and decorative borders that create a complete and harmonious work of art.
