19th Century Italian Walnut Louis XVI Triple Armoire features incredible neoclassical architecture with an intriguing rounded corner design with full length beveled mirror on the center door flanked by two side doors with two distinctive original oil paintings of still life colorfully embellishing the upper portion.  The entire facade is festooned with bas relief carvings inspired by the architects of ancient Greece and Rome.  Motifs include corbels, laurel swags, rosettes, bell flowers, draperies, foliates and bold egg & dart trim.  The center door and side doors are framed by turned & carved columns emphasizing the classical look.  Bold molding abounds from crown to base, the former of which is subtly arched at the center, and features carved laurel wreaths and sprays.  The doors open to reveal a cavernous interior with interior drawer and adjustable shelving making this as functional as it is magnificent to behold.  Sculpted from select walnut, the sheer natural beauty of the wood only enhances the artistry that the sculptors provided for this masterwork of the cabinetmaker's art!
