I picked this up for a song yesterday, other than thinking its probably French and that the top is maple and it should be one of a pair I know don't have a clue. It's about 1m tall by 96cm wide and 60cm deep. The columns and feet appear to be carved from a solid piece of wood rather than applied carving and the back panel is solid wood as opposed to ply. It needs a little conservation/restoration (loose joints need clamping and glueing some French polishing etc) but other than that its good. The joinery certainly seems to be quality, any information would be much appreciated.

And some more pictures, there doesn't seem to be any makers marks or stickers.

P.S. The pictures looked better on my computer unfortunately they were taken under LED lights.

Ooh la la, a nice rococo serpentine buffet in some strange configuration. 1880ish, in what looks like 'wild cherry' as they call it but hard to tell in the pics(walnut was their other standard, almost never maple),

Can you pull back and take a full photo of it? It's either one side of a full buffet or a custom fitted piece to a corner of a room.

A good example of how the French made the best quality furniture in the world-solid white oak carcasses, usually solid hardwoods elsewhere.

It could be one side of a typical enfilade like this one: https://www.chairish.com/product/226321/french-four-door-cherry-buffet

Hope this is a bit better, it is a right hand corner piece as evidenced by its glorious left side compared to its plain right. I think just the top is maple (due to the "flame").

Yes, a rare built in walnut Louis XV type server with 1890s nouveau influences on the curves-tres' cool !

I think your "first responder" is spot on with the identification clue.  Maybe not exact, but definitely in the same style and period.  Tres' jolie.

Tres bien merci beaucoup! C'est magnifique. What is crazy is that it was at our local recycle yard and I paid them £15 (about $20) for it, a lady came in just behind me and looked close to tears when she realised I had just bought it, I instantly fell in love with it and although our place isn't huge we have created a nice space for it live.

The problem with that one(which was cheaper than firewood) is the unusual shape and that it requires a corner ti live in. Well bought!

I was wondering just what song you had to sing to get this piece!  :)

Les Mis

I had a dream in time gone by

when hopes were high and life worth living...

Les Miserables

"Bargain" by the WHO great tune ☺
