Beautiful Art Nouveau Walnut Double Armoire and Matching Double Bed c. 1890
A very good quality late 19th Century French bedroom suite of Art Nouveau design and dating from around 1890.
The armoire has spiral supports and arched double doors original bevelled mirror plates opening to reveal original hanging hooks and a single shelf. The spandrels carved with fruits and with lovely flattened bun feet. There is a large drawer to the base of the wardrobe which retains its original handles and carved lozenge moulding.
This is a well made solid walnut armoire, very heavy and robust, but which dismantles into smaller sections for transport.
The matching double bed is of excellent quality also and has a tall arched headboard surmounted by a large urn finial. The spiral supports with carved fruit capitals and urn finials. The plinth with matching lozenge design and an attractive stepped border.
The bed dismantles fully and the side rails attach with original turn thumb brass/metal bolts.
In excellent original condition and from a private home, both the wardrobe and the bed having a beautiful and consistent colour and a soft waxed finish. Some small and minor dings to the armoire and bed and a few small patches of wear in the mirror plates consistent with age and use but nothing significant and the mirrors are clear and bright.
The bed will accept a standard double mattress but you will need to supply your own softwood slats or we can supply these for cost price of £80.
Courier charges to most of the UK for both the bed and the armoire combines would be £70 - £80.

About me and my promise to you:
I have always had a passion for antiques and like many collectors I have spent every spare moment rummaging around antique shops, house sales and auctions.
Four years ago I decided to make my passion my full time profession and since then I have worked alongside a qualified antiques dealer who is the third generation of her family to be ‘in the trade’.
I want to earn repeat business from happy customers so am determined to keep my prices very low, to offer excellent value, and to send you really lovely items which are fairly and correctly described and fit for purpose.
I am not trying to make my fortune - just hoping to earn a small living wage and to stay working in the field I have chosen and love.
If I do not have the right piece in my stock for you, do please let me know if you what you are looking for and I will try to find it for you at a reasonable price and on a no obligation basis.
Any questions at all or if you would like to view my stock in Sussex, please do call me on 07407 633 233
