Antique French Carved Oak Sideboard Cabinet Black Forest Hound Dog Bird Whippet

 

~Direct from France~

~Direct from a ‘castle estate’ in France, never offered ‘on the market’ before.  We recently purchased the entire contents of a GORGEOUS French estate, including this exceptional piece and several other antiques!~

~Stunning silhouette, I don’t know where to begin to describe this beauty.  Most definitely a ‘commissioned piece’ for this wealthy French family, it has absolutely superb craftsmanship.  Let’s begin at the high upper crown and THOSE GORGEOUS BLACK FOREST CARVED BIRDS IN FLIGHT surrounded by open carved foliage with a large dimensional carved center cartouche~

~Center enclosed shelf has CARVED FULL BODY HUNTING HOUNDS (whippets?) on each side with carved recessed panels in the back~

~Double drawers with hand carved foliate on the drawer friezes with carved drawer pulls.~

~Carved keystone corners, carved baluster posts between shelves~


~Majestically tall, over 5 ft., yet slender enough (19”) to tuck in a special place in ANY ROOM.  This kind of special cabinet would, of course, do well in a dining room, but serve as equally impressive in a den, family room, or kitchen, (and YES a powder room).  Imagine it filled with not only serving pieces, but also collectible majolica…barbotine…French copper…leather books…antique framed art…and yes, perfume bottles & bath towels~

 

~Quality throughout with dovetailed drawers~

~SOLID OAK, Heavy and strong, well built by craftsmen of the period~

~c1880~
