The rich patina of the burled elm and the fine carving combine to form a buffet of stunning appearance and demeanor. Aside from the overall attractive appearance, what sets this buffet apart from its contemporaries is the fact that rarely are case pieces constructed of solid pieces burled wood. It also has the added functionality of an interior candle drawer beneath the shelf.

Two drawers over two shaped and recessed panel doors are the traditional arrangement for buffets and this one doesn’t disappoint. Even more delightful is the fact that the scalloped apron and scrolled feet have survived. While the interior shelf has disappeared, our workshop can easily replace, it if needed.
