19th Century English oak buffet with Green Man carvings

Two piece solid oak buffet/sideboard with mirrored back and two carved columns supporting carved cornice.  Two doors and drawers have high relief carvings of the Green Man motif.  Right cabinet space behind door has slide-out shelf with nine (beverage ?) compartments.

The finish condition appears to be original  with age expected wear.  Beveled mirror has small amount of "foxing".  Door pulls appear not to be original but the drawer pulls are integrated into the carved lion head style Green Man face.  Joinery and overall structure are very sturdy.  The top of the base cabinet (29" from floor) has 3 minor beverage rings and one noteceable scratch, but is in otherwise good condition.
