An exceptional antique French Louis XV armoire in beautiful condition. Made of Chestnut, this is a lovingly cared for piece which dates from the mid to late 1800s. Externally the wood has a beautiful warm patina, enhanced with elegant hand carved detailing and stunning large brass escutcheons. Internally, it offers a wealth of adaptable storage with 2 weighty shelves and a large fitted drawer. The armoire retains the original working key.
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: Excellent. Note that the cornice has been sympathetically adapted in recent years with 2 pieces of wood added to either side. This is not a repair, the armoire would have been made without sides on the cornice so that it would fit into an alcove.
Measurements: H: 225 cm, W: 136 cm (widest point - cornice), D: 53 cm
