This gilt-brass mounted burl walnut and parcel-gilt armoire is in the Louis XVI style. This style is inspired by late 18th century French neo-classical designs. The cast or carved details appear to be of equal fine quality. This is a very large and roomy antique French armoire with three doors.The center door has leaf-cast frieze above its arched mirror and is flanked by paneled doors on eight foliate-cast squared baluster legs. The armoire has an arched center section with a beveled glass mirrored door, flanked by doors with burl walnut panels; the interior is fitted with drawers, shelves, and mirrors behind the burled doors; the entire wardrobe is with brass foliate borders and is supported by square tapered knobbed feet. The mirrored center section provides a rod to hang long garments as well as a bottom drawer for essentials. The two matched walnut doors have storage area as well designed shelves and drawers.
Each door has a keyed lock, a mirror and a rod for hanging clothes. I do not know the exact circa nor the maker. I have enjoyed this wardrobe for 30 years. I have moved it three times and have replaced hundred year old original screws in each door hinge.
The pictures are helpful when assembling the many parts of the puzzle. I guesstimate it weights close to 350 pounds. I will supply a list of local movers and shippers.Also, I will provide a detailed photo album for assemble and disassembly instructions. Height 5'10" +2", width 6'3"depth 21".
