Huge Vintage French Original Painted Armoire. This is one of our latest finds on our recent antiques treasure hunt. This is a stunning and huge French original painted armoire with 5-doors and drawers.
So much going on with this, difficult to know where to start! The top is flat which makes it easier for those tighter ceilings. There are two double wardrobes either side of the middle robe.
The middle robe is half size with 4 drawers under. There is some beautiful detail with the carved doors and drawers all with shell embellishments on the doors and at the bottom of the feet.The feet are typically french with the lovely cabriole legs and escargot snail feet. The armoire is very heavy and solid made from a mix of Beech, Pine and Oak. It has it's original off-white paint and the embellishments which are finished in gold. It is cavernous with a huge amount of hanging space. There is one mirror on the inside door, originally had two. The bars in the base are rails for a shoe rack. It probably had shelves at one time.
This is a vintage armoire, there are a few knocks and nibbles of course, and several of the fittings are missing but it still holds together fine as it has dowels at the top as well. These could easily be replaced with L shaped brackets available in DIY stores. Keys are also present with the armoire. It completely dismantles for transportation making it easy to get up stairs. Constructed in the traditional French manner so that it bolts together to form a very sturdy wardrobe unlike modern flat pack items.
