Antique French Carved Oak Hunt Cabinet Sideboard Server Bookcase Wine Victorian
Antique French Carved Oak Hunt Cabinet Sideboard Server Bookcase Wine Country
~Direct from France~
~This hand carved cabinet is one of those rare 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.~
~The double doors have dimensional carvings in the center medallions that “tell the story” about the commissioning of this piece. The left oval seems to have agricultural tools, a hat, wheat, etc. The right oval has perhaps a wine barrel and other tools…very intriguing!~
~Each door is flanked by full dimensional Black Forest foliage and fruits~
~Double drawers have carved dimensional twig handles in the center of more foliage and dovetailed construction~
~UPPER shelves have carved scrolls and Black Forest fruits and foliage corbels on either side~
~Paneled back is completely carved on all levels~
~Shelf fronts have open carved trim below each one~
~Exquisite LARGE open carved crown perfectly balances out the server~
~ALL the beveled edges are heavily carved~
~As a further testament to the high level of quality, note the side panels are also fully carved~
oak, heavy, heavy and strong well built by craftsmen of the period~

Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to size. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only), typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.
This item is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. Key included but old locks are finicky and are NOT guaranteed to work. There is an old separation on the flat cabinet top towards the back; it’s caused by the weight of the upper cabinet, and almost every single one of these antique servers has the same thing. Likewise, a straight line separation on the side carved panel. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
