Item Ref

- moulded side- and door panels
- original fine and elaborate cornice

- intricate carved corbels and deeply moulded plinth

- a new brass rail has been fitted and a couple of the backboards are replacements.

The condition of this armoire is outstanding, no repairs and no damage other than the slightest wear.
The wardrobe is clean and tidy inside and out.
The decorative detail on this piece is special to say the least, all carvings and decorative mouldings of a most stylish quality, rarely seen.
The panels are deeply fielded, the cornice is crisp and deep.
The hardware, lock, catches and the wooden clamps all match in craftmanship and in quality.
The larch timber is a lovely colour and the wardrobe hence is very heavy.
As most continental wardrobes, this one also dismantles for ease of access and transport. The assembly is straight forward, it is very well constructed and slots together perfectly, despite it's weight.
Altogether a substantial country piece of good proportions, a wardrobe not easy to find in this condition.
