A Magnificent and rare antique French oak heavily hand carved armoire from Normandy. These superb armoires were usually crafted to be used as a wedding gift by a father for newly married couples. The carvings of floral urns, grapes and foliage are spectacular, as are the brass escutcheons and hinges. This piece retains its locking key. This is fitted internally with two fixed height shelves, one of which has two drawers. There is a secret bottom drawer which is disguised as just a carved floral panel. At some stage of its life the front legs were shortened by approx 1cm. This is being sympathetically restored back to its original height legs at present by our restorer. Antique French armoires of this quality and beauty are extremely rare.
SIZE approx: 233cm high x 190cm wide at top x 163cm wide at body x 64cm deep at top x 52cm deep at body
