antique period pine double wardrobe in original paint 1850




Item Ref



A very substantial early pine double country wardrobe, originating from the northern parts of the Continent, Scandinavia or Germany.
Dating from the equivalent of the late Georgian era, 1800 to 1840, this wardrobe was made to a very good standard:
- dove tailed construction
- hand forged internal strap hinges and catches
- original hand cut brass escutcheons
- original lock and key
- double panelled sides and doors, deeply fielded
- rounded corners and original intricate dental / bobbin style cornice
- original internal peg board and rail
- fabulous bracket foot base and shoe well ( behind fake drawer fronts)
The condition of this piece is exceptional, the timber of superb quality and density.
The paint, which is extra special, is original, a subtle Gustavian sage green with lighter sage picked out in panels, cornice and base. A chalky flat matt finish with moderate distressing.
A minor amount of scattered old wood worm holes found in the base, see photos 5 and 7.
The wardrobe dismantles for transport and access and is ready to use.
A new brass rail has been fitted inside and this wardrobe has an internal depth of 20"!
One of the best wardrobes we have had lately, harder and harder to find in this condition.
1560mm wide
2080mm high
640mm deep
510mm internal depth 20"
