Antique Bonnetieres and Vitrines

The Antique Bonnetiere, or Small Wardrobe, was the perfect solution to provide storage immediately inside the home into which a lady could keep her outer garments and bonnets. Gentlemen soon followed suit with the Antique Homme Debout, which we see on a rare occasion. Some clever artisan placed glass instead of wood panels in the framework, and voila, the Antique Vitrine, also known as the Antiqe Curio Cabinet, was born!  Called a curio cabinet by the English, the Antique Vitrine is a perfect way to display your coveted collection or prized family heirlooms. The Antique Bonnetiere serves as a small armoire in any room where a full size armoire simply won’t fit.  Find an incredible assortment of Antique Vitrines, Antique Curio Cabinets, Antique Bonnetieres, Antique Small Armoires, and Antique Small Wardrobes at Inessa Stewart Antiques Online Wholesale Antique Showroom!  OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
