New into our depot and dating from the mid 20th century, This is a very nice quality, 2 door French armoire. It's bow topped in what the French call "chapeau de gendarme" style, It stands on pretty carved cabriole legs and has nicely shaped, panelled solid oak doors The carved decoration is country style and typical of French furniture from between the wars. The lock escutcheons are brass and the locks and keys are in place and working. And a pretty neo classical frieze carved at the centre of the base and more carving on the shoulders and between the doors.
It's a little darker than shown in the photos due to the flash. It offers a good amount of hanging and storage space.
