The Famille Rose buffet features one of my favourite china designs. It is based on chinese export porcelain from 1720 onwards. The name literally means “the pink family” and refers to the colour pallete used which featured a distinctive magenta pink. In particular the design is one of about a thousand known ‘European subject’ designs which were decorated in china copying european images, specifically for the european market.
The gloss mahogany buffet or sideboard (or Huntboard in the US) is Queen Anne in style, although the term predominantly describes furniture from the 1720’s to 1760s – even though queen Anne reigned earlier than that (1702-14), and the name was first applied to the style more than a century after it was fashionable! The cabriole (or Queen Anne) leg is the most recognisable element of of the style, and was influenced by the Rococo style from the French court of Louis XV.
The buffet has queen Anne legs, six drawers with large brass drawer pulls and can be custom made in different wood colours (oak and walnut – satin and matt finish) and different ornaments or contents (drinks and cigars, serving cakes etc).
