Few cities in the world have such a storied history in the production of fine furniture as Lyon, France, and this armoire stands testament to the region's expert artisans and incredible supply of superlative French walnut, at least during the period in which this armoire was made! Simple architecture is enhanced with 5 raised & recessed panels on each side (a trademark of the area), with bold molding above and below supported by bun feet. Finely carved central door panels contrast the plain panels below, with a French scroll on the framework of the top panels above accented with floral and foliate flourishes. The stunning cartouche on the carved crown is the piece de resistance!
Circa 1770s.
Measures 95.5H x 65W x 28D.
