Unusual Form Buffet – Possibly RJ Horner

Published by under RJ Horner

This buffet certainly has the heft of a Horner piece and the carvings are at the level that one would expect of a Horner but it is difficult to be sure as it is unmarked. The griffins are especially detailed with the one in the bottom center displaying an unusual amount of detail in the hairs on the chest and tail as well as the feathers on the wings. There are 4 other griffins integrated into the design as well. Note the “tin-roof” type carvings in the top curved section of the cabinet (see the listing photos to view this detail).

This buffet will be sold on December 1st starting at $3,000 with an expected range of $6,000 to $8,000. More details can be seen at the listing.
