This is one of my most favorite pieces of furniture. We bought it this past summer from a dear friend. She was having an estate sale and wanted to sell this piece, but still hesitant to part with it. We've been friends for over 40 years and knowing I thought it was a treasure she was happy for me to have it. This piece has a wonderful history. It was her great aunt's, her future husband had it made as his wedding gift to her. It has a lovely old finish, and I think you can see the beautiful hand carving on the front. It has two large drawers, one for silver and the other for linens. On each end there is a door that opens to a cupboard for china. Now for my dilemma...... My auntie had furniture like this piece and I always called it a side-boy, my husband calls it a sidecar (I don't know how he came up with this) and most people call it a buffet. Help, help ! What is it's true name?
I love to put seasonal pieces on my side-boy, sidecar, buffet. Right now I'm celebrating Valentine's Day. A little of this and that..... the Red Transferware my husband found a couple months ago at his favorite little Saturday flea market and the heart vase he found at a garage sale several years ago. Doesn't he find the neatest things? Thanks you honey.
Now back to my dilemma.........side-boy, sidecar, or buffet. What do you think???? Have a special day, hugs, Linda
