LARGE FRENCH LINEN PRESS ARMOIRE. This is a substantial and handsome antique French armoire which dates to the late 1800's, made of solid oak this piece is very large and heavy and would suit a large room to show it off well. The exterior is made of handsomely aged rustic oak and although this piece is very heavy and solid, the doors, top plinth and shelves are removable, which makes it more easy to position into the home.
The armoire is tall and wide with two large carved doors which sit on large metal hinges, the doors can be easily lifted off for transportation. The right hand door is fitted with a later lock but sadly we don't have a key, the one shown is for ornamental purposes only. The doors open to reveal a pale grey painted interior and three shelves which we have added to make it into a useful and functional piece. It is ideal for use as a linen press, perfect for storing clothes and bedding, a good alternative to more traditional wardrobes with hanging rails. This piece is in very solid structural condition but has many marks, knocks, dents, scratches and old wood worm holes here and there.
We have checked this piece over thoroughly, any old and damaged wood has been replaced, wood worm holes treated and the inside given a coat of paint as the wood was very rustic and unfinished. This piece is now refurbished and ready for your home. Height-205cms width-145.5cms depth- 67cms. The measurements are taken at the widest points.North as far as Nottingham- day subject to change.
