Antique Italian Neoclassical Painted Triple Armoire is a splendid expression of the classical style that dates back three thousand years!  Even the French embraced the style during the reign of Louis XVI, but in reality it never really went out of fashion.  This example, with rectilinear architecture features beautifully carved molded detail appearing in abundance spanning the crown and upper portion as well as the base.  Motifs include spiral ribbon, egg and tongue & dart, with a particularly resplendent vine relief across the bonnet that is amazingly intricate, and accented with rosettes.  On each side door in its own shield shaped framework appears an exquisite torchere set in a concentric wheat wreath and accented at each upper corner with a rosette.  Under each is an upholstered panel, which allows one to choose a coordinating fabric for that panel if so desired.  Support is provided by tapered and carved legs, and all the carving has been lovingly accentuated with gold highlighting to contrast it against the sedate almond color of the paneling and woodwork.  All three doors open to reveal cavernous storage, with a hanging rod in the center compartment, and adjustable shelves on the side compartments for an amazing availability of customizable space, all accessed with brass handles.  As an added bonus, the center door houses a full length beveled mirror perfect for enhancing ambient light and providing a lovely reflection of your room, with a surprise on the inside~ each side door has a full length mirror on its interior face, so that when the two outside cabinets doors are open, leaving the center door closed, one produces a tailor's dressing mirror effect!
