An exceptional antique French oak armoire. This is an incredibly striking piece with some beautiful detailing. The doors and base are highlighted with gold studs, which also feature in a beautiful carved fan on the base. The doors have the original large brass escutcheons which compliment the deep rich patina of the wood. Internally, the armoire comes with the original drawer and shelf with locking hook. Included in the price is the option to have a further 2 custom made shelves or a shelf and hanging rail.
This armoire is fully knockdown, dissembling into manageable pieces for ease of transport. Being an older armoire it is held together with wooden dowel pegs. It will require 2 people to assemble. Buyers will receive a step by step guide to help them.
Condition: Very good. As with all French furniture of this age there are idiosyncrasies and signs of wear as well as evidence of past historical woodworm. It has been fully treated as a precaution and is structurally very sound once assembled. There is a small piece missing from the bottom of the cornice on the right hand side (see larger photos).
Measurements: H: 218 cm, W: 140 cm (widest point - cornice), D:51 cm
