Quebec Cabinet

I am always on the hunt for vintage treasures and especially bargains, but once in a while I think it is worth sinking some money into a real investment piece.  I hunted for the right piece for my dining room, knowing it had to be big with loads of storage and preferably solid, not glass doors.  When we came across this cabinet, I knew this was a keeper.

French Canadian pieces have their own look and feel, rather like French or Belgian pieces.  I love the gothic arches and the scalloped edge.


It is really huge and holds all of my dishes, cake stands, candle holders.....


.......silver serving pieces


........my Buffalo China and Ironstone



...and a great big drawer to stuff away all the linens and napkin rings.

Last week Mary from Vintage Home and Garden was debating whether or not to make a big purchase of a large (and fabulous) cabinet.  Her post is really interesting, so if you want to see it go here and whether she decided to go for an "investment piece".

  6. What a great cabinet that is I especially like the fact that you can choose to see all beautiful things or to hide them behind the doors.
