Location: Dallas


Discovered in the Picardie region, this impressive armoire was hand-crafted from indigenous French oak and features a wide variety of classic Country French hand-carved embellishment from crown to base. The stylized flower taking center stage is flanked by foliate sprays which direct your attention to the flourishes emanating from the cornerposts. The doors and center stile take precedence with finely scrolled frames and drapery, floral and foliate motifs executed in a stylized manner. Pierced ferrures guard the keyholes while no less than six steel barrel hinges provide sturdy mounts for the doors and allow them to swing out almost 180 degrees. Scrolled apron wraps around to the back, supported by scrolled legs with escargot feet and accentuated with a foliate carving at the center.
Circa 1830s.
Measures 91 x 61 x 27.
