Antique Vitrines and Bonnetieres

The Antique Bonnetiere was the perfect solution to provide storage immediately inside the home into which a lady could keep her outer garments and bonnets. Gentlemen soon followed suit with the Antique Homme Debout, which we see on a rare occasion. Some clever artisan placed glass instead of wood panels in the framework, and voila, the Antique Vitrine was born!  Called a curio cabinet by the English, the Antique Vitrine is a perfect way to display your coveted collection or prized family heirlooms. The Antique Bonnetiere serves as a small armoire in any room where a full size armoire simply won’t fit.
