This display sample is listed as an example of the work we do at the l. Love this rescued server beyond simply vintage, this is an antique buffet/server with simple lines that are timeless even though it is likely from the'40s or earlier. There is no question that it will complement the modern styles of today. This piece had seen significant wear over the years (the last pic is a before shot) and it was a pleasure to bring back to life. We unearthed a beautiful top with spectacular wood grains that we accentuated with a new walnut hand-rubbed finish and gave the same treatment to the fronts of the drawers and the turned front legs.

We opted to sand out some of the nicks, scratches, and in some cases gouges, but left behind many traces of the past because we enjoyed the worn-wood look that came naturally to this piece and people try so hard to create. We gave the body a navy painted finish and replaced the original wood knobs (two were missing) with terrific modern metal cage knobs with a light bronze wash. The buffet sits on the original wooden wheels that are in working order. The server is solid but this is a very old piece with old wood drawer runners on the sides rather than modern central runners, so expect that drawer movement is not as smooth.

The smaller drawers are nice and easy but the wide drawers require two hands to keep even. This is standard with old furniture but in case you are unfamiliar, we want to make note.

Do not expect perfection, but do expect a lot of charm. There are some small holes in the top along the back edge where there was an ornamental "backsplash" back in the day. There are also some splits in the bottoms of the drawers that do not effect the stability for normal dining use like tablecloths and napkins and even silverware in the smaller drawers in the foyer it would be great for hats and scarves and gloves, etc. We have laid a plasticized striped paper in the drawer bottoms but have not adhered it to the surface so it can be removed easily.

Dimensions: 40" wide by 19" deep (20" with knobs) by 35-1/4" tall. The style is minimalist and modern.
