Antique french buffet and hutch
The backstory behind this piece is that it was built by a French furniture maker around the turn of the century, was sold to a local family, and was then given back to the furniture maker in the late 30s as the owners feared that it would be destroyed under German occupation. It stayed with the furniture maker until it was acquired by a relative and shipped to the US in the 1960s. Very gothic; lots of griffins.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000
