This large French Louis XV style enfilade or sideboard is an impressive and imposing piece of vintage, quality-made French furniture. It is constructed in oak and has a gorgeous mellow honey tone, and some magnificent features that make it a real stand out. Definitely vintage, we would date this piece to c1940, though it could be older.

This incredible piece is very large, and features 4 doors and 4 drawers. It is both breakfront and bowfront in style, with the central two door cupboard protruding out from the single side cupboards, but with also a beautiful bowed or curved form. The two central doors open to a bowed double-sized cupboard with a single fixed shelf, and the side cupboards are straight in style, again with a fixed shelf. The doorfronts feature deep, impressive carving and panelling, and attractive contrasting cross-hatch design. There are three original keys for the cupboards - one for each of the side cupboards, and one for the central double cupboard. Atop the cupboards, there are 4 drawers, with complimentary carving and original fittings. The top surface of the unit is in lovely condition, shaped in form. The sideboard stands on ornately carved cabriole legs, with additional legs supporting the breakfront design.

The sideboard is in beautiful vintage condition. The internal cupboards and drawers are all clean, and ready for immediate use. The only condition issue to mention is some spot staining to the timber, which appears to be splashes of red wine - or am I imagining the French gatherings over the years??

This gorgeous piece is HUGE. It measures 235cm wide, 93cm high and is 51cm, bowing to 60.5cm deep. It would be ideal in the loungeroom as a TV stand or sideboard, or in the dining room or family room as an impressive storage unit!

This is such a beautiful piece of French furniture - hard to convey its lovely mellow tone in photographs!!

As with all antique and vintage furniture, age-appropriate wear and character marks should be expected. This terrific piece will be greatly admired, as well as proving very functional.

You are invited to view this piece at our showrooms in Carlton, Sydney NSW.
