A particularly handsome mid 19th century French Armoire of classical and restrained proportions in cherry with chestnut side and rear panels. Standing 215 cm high it has an overall width of 140cm with external depth of 59cm and 55cm internally - this allowing plenty of room for clothing on coat hangers.
Unrestored and original, with the exception of a later brass rail for hangers, it has the deep warm glow that well polished cherry acquires with age, whilst the chestnut side panels are of a more sombre hue. The are are pair of original drop in shelves to the interior - one of which has to be removed in order to hang clothes. Brass hinges, long brass escutcheon and its lock are original but its key had been mislaid by its last owners (they are still looking and hopefully it will surface). Both cornice and doors are easily removable but the remainder is in one piece. It is structurally sound, stands square on its well formed and substantial feet and what traces of old woodworm that there are was treated long ago and is therefore historic.
140cm wide - 215cm high and 59cm deep
