A highly decorative painted antique French armoire. Hailing from Brittany, this has beautiful traditional carving featuring baskets of flowers and floral imagery. It has a highly carved and decorative cornice, iron hinges and a fully working lock and key. This armoire dates from the early 1900s and does show its age in places. It is a fairly rustic piece which has been sympathetically painted and waxed to maintain its character. Internally it is very spacious and clean and comes with the original shelves and 2 internal drawers. The shelves and drawers are lined with pretty French fabric.
This armoire is fully knockdown, dissembling into manageable pieces for ease of transport. Being an older armoire it is held together using wooden dowel pegs. It will require 2 people to assemble. Buyers will receive a step by step guide to help them.
Paint: Fired Earth ‘Weald Green’ eco-friendly eggshell
Finish: Black wax/clear wax
Condition: Good. It has experienced woodworm in the past in the 2 rear feet. These have been repaired at some point and treated by us again as a precaution. Once assembled the armoire is structurally very sound.
