19th Century French Louis Philippe Walnut Display Armoire by Krieger is a magnificent example from one of the top five furniture houses of Paris during the Belle Epoque Period.  Originally founded in 1826 by Antoine Krieger, the company thrived such that by the end of the century its manufacturing facility covered five acres in Faubourg St. Antoine in Paris.  Winning awards in the Paris Exposition of 1849, and the Universal Expositions of 1851 and 1855, Maison Krieger flourished until the early 20th century.  They are known for their use of exceptional materials and impeccable craftsmanship as well as artistry that can only be imitated, not duplicated.  This example was rendered from hand-select heart French walnut, and features a boldly molded crown en arbalette, or contoured to resemble an archer's bow.  The same contours appear on the top of the single door, which has been generously fitted with glass to allow unfettered visual access to whatever you decide to display within.  All original shelving is adjustable, making it as versatile as it is beautiful.  Even the sides are comprised of elegantly scdrolled and contoured panels to create visual interest from all angles.  The scrolled apron and legs below conceal a full width drawer.  Truly a collector's item in its own right, this instant family heirloom is the perfect piece to display your most cherished keepsakes!
Circa 1870
