Sculpted from the king of woods ~ rosewood ~ this elegant armoire exudes the classic and timeless lines inspired by ancient Greece and Rome that came to be called the Louis XVI style. The romantic archer's bow crown with overlaid arrows provide a rest for the floral wreath with ribbon accents. A cameo with floral basket appears atop the crown just under, with foliates spraying out to the sides. Quatrefoil overlay extends down each of the entire cornerposts, with an intriguing upswing and foliate flourish appearing between forming an interesting contour for the frame around the hand-beveled full-length glass. A complementary flourish on the apron and turned, tapered legs complete the lookof this antique display armoire. As is the case with armoires in this genre, the interior is finished out better than the exteriors of modern furniture!
Circa 1880s.
