“Timeless Tamerlane, the epitome of Luxury…” The perfect description of this exotic and incredible Tamerlane China Hutch by Thomasville. WOW! It is comprised of two pieces, a top hutch and a lower buffet with hardwood frames, Oriental Holly and Acacia Burl accents, brass plated hardware, and LOTS of unique details! The top hutch is composed of double doors with glass fronts and brass plated hardware enclosing two hardwood shelves on the left and open shelves with faux bamboo arm details on the right. The top of the cabinet has lovely upward curved edges giving it a fantastic Asian flair. The lower buffet is composed of four stacked drawers on the left featuring vertical cylindrical handle pulls with brass plated tips. Each drawer’s hardware alternates from the top having two handles, then below having one, then two, then one… it’s certainly an eye-catching detail!! Also, the top drawer has three dividing slats allowing for precise organization!! They are fixed in their slots; however, you can remove one, two, or all three if you need a larger section. To the right beside the drawers, you have marvelous double doors enclosing a single wood shelf above an open lower storage space. The doors feature two brass plated curved corner square shaped hinges on each door and a larger brass plated center detail with two drop pulls and two keyholes. The legs of the buffet have a “dog bone” or “butterfly” shaped brass plated detail inlaid above the legs AND… the leg shape mimics the shape of those details! And a gorgeous skirting or plinth block apron runs between the front legs… it is MAGNIFICENT!!!! It bears a spectacular Chinoiserie style with a flair of Hollywood Regency and Campaign style and it would be the perfect piece to display all of that “fine China” your grandmother gave you!! But maybe you don’t have “fine China” to display? No problem!!, fill it with art, books, or any décor and simply call it a striking display cabinet! Or… call it a dry bar and fill the display portion with wonderful cocktail glasses and use the lower part for liquor bottles and other bar accessories. It has adequate storage, it is beautiful, versatile, useful, and it’s made by Thomasville, so you know it is of the finest quality!
