Sculpted from select French walnut by master artisans, this stunning armoire features a serpentine front facade lavished with baroque-inspired carvings that have been highlighted in gold. Continuing the embellishment theme on the arched crown and contoured base supported by scrolled & carved legs, it is an unusual artifact in that the majority of armoires produced during this period had mirrored doors. The grand size indicates it was commissioned by a particularly affluent client who had an obvious flair for the magnificent!
Circa 1870s.
Measures 99H x 63W x 25D.
