Guy Buffet & Those Whimsical French Waiters

French painter Guy Buffet is famed for his humorous & whimsical art, prints and posters of restaurant and bar scenes, featuring chefs, waiters and barmen, food and drink. He has been drawing and painting since childhood and grew up in a family who owned a restaurant in France. Guy has a huge following worldwide. Anyone who loves food and wine is likely to own at least one of his many licensed products, ranging from shoes, ties, shirts, kitchenware, books, calendars, and prints. Some of his most famous products were items produced for the culinary store Williams-Sonoma.
This Limoges box mixes the elegance of a fine work of art  with the whimsical humor reminiscent of Mr. Buffet's quirky paintings.
