19th Century French Country Louis XV Style Walnut Confiturier or Jam Cabinet
A charming 19th century French Country Louis XV style confiturier or jam cabinet from the South of France near Gordes, circa 1880s. Handcrafted of old growth walnut with front and side serpentine shaped molded edge over a single full-width drawer defined by molding and having a raised panel door featuring a burled walnut center that opens to reveal a single shelf. Carved scalloped apron raised on short cabriole legs ending in scrolled French toes. All original hardware.
Confituriers like this one were originally used to store confit, jams, jellies, pates and more. They are extremely versatile cabinets because they are usually smaller than a buffet or chest of drawers and can be used for storage in any room. They can easily be converted into powder room vanities, used as nightstands, and even retrofitted with small refrigeration units for bar areas or wine rooms. They make great storage for extra shoes, boots, and keys near the back door. This cabinet is a wonderful example of the petite buffet with one door affectionately called the confiturier.
