About

The marble top above an inlaid frieze with Greek key motif, with two cabinet doors revealing shelved interior, the doors finely veneered "au quatre faces", with fine bronze mounts flanking the doors, on square tapering legs, with bronze mounts.
Related examples can be seen in the book I Mobili di Paolo Buffa, Roberto Rizzi
these pieces were probably made in 1948, where buffa used identical bronze mounts to this on many of his most intricate pieces, that were referencing the 18th century master of inlay, Maggiolini. The square tapering legs terminating in sabots, the modified Greek key inlay, the use of veneer and the bronze ring pulls are all signature buffa.
