Work of very high quality and beautiful patina. Louis XIV period - Regency Late 17th - early 18th This type of furniture, also known as "Cabinet Buffet", is always wearing a thick marble table. It is the furniture of large properties, with its double doors allowing a dual function: presentation and services of crockery, silver dishes and table services that were usually stored there. At this time, it was customary to leave the doors completely open, more ostentatiously than necessary. This presented buffet offers all the characteristics of the Parisian buffet: Extended door hanger, thick frame molding, skirting base, narrow and deep drawers called "knife". The absence of a stamp is easily explained by the fact that the latter became mandatory in 1743, and applied around 1751. This furniture was executed well before, late seventeenth or early eighteenth.
