19th Century Country French Normandy Stripped Oak Armoire features the graceful lines that characterize the breed, with an elegant chapeau de gendarme cornice appearing on top, overlooking the finely carved bonnet and exquisitely carved tilted oval raised panels centered on each door.  Fine molded detail is pervasive in the design.  Considered essential to any respectable household, such pieces held a place of honor in the home, and housed anything from clothing to linens to items one would relegate to a closet, since the design predates the closet by a century or two!  Rendered in dense, old-growth indigenous oak to last for several lifetimes!

Circa 1840s
