Flaming Birch Montreal c. 1835 Empire Buffet
Here is one of the finest pieces of Canadiana we have ever had. This flaming birch buffet from Montreal circa 1835 is a piece seldom seen outside of a museum.
It measures 69 inches wide; 56 1/2 inches tall to the top of the backboard; 18 1/2 inches deep. It comes to us through the same estate as the curled maple pieces of Jacques and Hay we are featuring although this piece is Montreal made and 25 to 30 years earlier. It is our belief at present that these pieces would have belonged to a high ranking government figure with perhaps a royal connection. We are working on that.
