Antique French Carved Oak Hunt Cabinet Sideboard Black Forest BARLEY TWIST
Antique French Carved Oak Hunt Cabinet Sideboard Bookcase Renaissance BARLEY TWIST
~Direct from France~
~This hand carved cabinet is one of those antiques that really just cause you to step back for a minute and study the details…the amazing details that were hand carved in the natural light, long before electricity and sophisticated tools. We’re quite sure this would have been a commissioned piece, created for French aristocracy, in the 19th century.~
~From the top…large hand carved crown features standing winged griffins on either side of the large center cartouche with dimensional carved stag head~
~BOTH of the large open upper shelves have carved griffin supports AND carved griffin sides. Note the carved fruits and foliage in the centers of the paneled shelf backs and the carved rounded edges on the upper shelves~
~The double doors have dimensional carvings in the center medallions that reflect “fruits of the hunt”. Left door oval features a pheasant; right door oval features a boar with hunt bag and horn~
~Each door is flanked by full length barley twist posts~
~Double drawers have carved dimensional griffin handles in the center of more foliage and dovetailed construction~
~ALL the beveled edges are heavily carved~
~SOLID oak, heavy, heavy and strong well built by craftsmen of the period~
