A beautiful large authentic antique armoire from St Malo. Made of warm oak, this is an incredibly eye catching piece, rich in detail and hand carved. It dates from the early to mid 18th century and is in exceptional condition for its age. Internally it is very clean and comes with 3 thick cut shelves. The base houses 2 very spacious drawers and a long central drawer which is lockable. Unusually the doors have double locks and this armoire comes with the 3 original fully working keys. It also retains the original internal iron door latches. This is an incredible statement piece which has been lovingly looked after, it offers fantastic storage as well as incredible historical presence.
This armoire is knockdown, dissembling into manageable pieces for ease of transport. Being an older armoire it is held together using hand made wooden dowel pegs. It will require 2 people to assemble. Buyers will receive a step by step guide to help them.
Condition: Very good. As with most French furniture of this age is has experienced some woodworm in the past and has fully treated as a precaution. The left door features a light split in the wood (see large photos), this is not a structural issue and is caused by the armoire being stored in different humidities over the years.
Measurements: H: 225 cm, W: 159 cm (widest point - cornice), D: 65 cm
