Hand-crafted from select French walnut and featuring a wonderful patinaed painted finish, this classic triple armoire features architecture and adornment inspired by the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. This splendid example of the style favored by Louis XVI features a step-front center section with full length bevelled mirror crowned by a spectacular sculpture of solid walnut depicting a floral wreath, foliates and ribbon. Banded wheat motifs were carved into the columns below that separate the center mirror from the two side mirrors which boast carved panels at the base. The interior opens to reveal cavernous storage and meticulous attention to detail, a strong indicator that this work was produced in Paris.
Circa 1890s.
Measures 100 x 63 x 19.5.
