Please view our shop for beautiful French furniture direct from the importers. New into our depot and dating from the mid 20th century, This is a French carved oak armoire. It has a bow top that sweeps up dramatically in what the French call "chapeau de gendarme" [policemans helmet]. The paneled doors are beautifully shaped and decorated with some pretty hand carved classical designs. It stands on carved cabriole legs.It's a "Breakfront" construction meaning the middle section stands proud of the end sections. The middle section also offers extra deep hanging space at 55 cms depth.
The large 173 cms section is all hanging space. This type of French vintage furniture breaks down easily to accommodate tight access and bolts back solidly together when in place with steel bolts..
it's a traditional French method of furniture construction which became popular over the last 2 centuries as apartment dwelling became more frequent in French cities... Dimensions, It's a good size at 198cms high x 55 cms deep [internal] 236 cms wide. Overall width at cornice overhang.The condition is fair also, though expect a few knocks and dings from decades of use. The centre right hand door has a very slight warp, if you look very closely at the pictures you may notice it "Gapes" ever so slightly in the middle, though this is hardly noticable and we've priced this armoire accordingly. It's going to look just stunning in a French inspired bedroom or country house hallway and give you plenty of practical storage..
