SOLD P P/U... "Champagne & Caviar!!” Antique Flemish Buffet..

1,995.00

"Romance... Nostalgia... Splendour... Ok, I'm gonna set the scene for you!! You are in a renaissance city; a true bohemian rhapsody of baroque, gothic & modern architecture surrounds you, interspersed with a generous dose of stone gabled townhouses... The smell of coffee - deep, rich, all velvet & chocolate & pepper fills your head, while the lyrical notes of the most romantic language floats by like a whisper... Where are you?? Why, you're in Antwerp off course, & like everything in Belgium, it all has to start with a story!!

Am I a hopeless romantic?? Dead right!! I'll always love & appreciate the small things; bright red geraniums against stone buildings, mile-long stretches of brocante shops, renaissance artworks by Van Dyck & let's not forget the mouth-watering smell of Belgian chocolates wafting from antiquated chocolatiers!! In Antwerp, life isn't passed by simply because people are too busy living it!! Food is enjoyed for hours at a time, conversation flows as easily as the wine & anything that is meant to be enjoyed is savoured... Just like this extraordinary buffet!!

150 years old, this is a beautiful Flemish buffet with the most exquisite carving boasting festoons of flora & grapes…The layers of aged patina are reminiscent of the layers of paint that has mellowed & aged with the genteel elegance you will find on old European buildings... In all my years I have never seen detailing like this – a very rare piece that should be passed down & enjoyed for another 150 years!! Hey, we all need heirloom pieces of furniture like this - be extravagant, live with a renewed gusto & I promise you'll forever see the world through flemish-tainted lenses!!"
