18th Century Dutch Neoclassical Wardrobe ~ Linen Press in Stripped Oak is a magnificent work created during the revival of classic Greek & Roman architecture during the mid-1800s.  The timeless facing arches with bold molded detail flank the focal centerpiece which is a carved urn at the center, resting on its own pediment.  Flanking the arches we see crown molding that cascades down to the mitered cornerposts in a graceful arc, with egg & dart molding providing a boundary line between the crown and the casework below.  With carved and fluted cornerposts flanking the upper cabinet, the doors were fitted with intricate cast brass key guards and carved with drapery motif.  The doors open wide making this an obvious choice for a family room as well as its possibilities in the bedroom or dining area.  Three very spacious drawers below, with a subtle step-front look, have been accented with cast bronze ring pulls and key guards, and are also flanked by mitered corners carved with corbels and fluting.  Bold base molding design completes the look.
Circa 1780s
