antique country period double pine wardrobe exceptional dismantles 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 external iron hinges and catches
- original hand cut escutcheons
- original lock and key
- double panelled doors, deeply fielded
- exceptional carved door cover strip decoration
- original intricate carvings on top frieze, in the style of roman nobles
- central rose carving of outstanding detail
- original fittings
- fabulous bracket foot base and shoe well
The condition of this piece is exceptional, the timber of superb quality and density.
The paint, which is recent, is Farrow and Ball's 'Shaded White', left in a chalky flat matt finish with moderate distressing.
A minor amount of scattered old wood worm holes found in the roof, see photos 13 and 14. Thoroughly treated and obsolete.
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 540mm!
One of the best wardrobes we have had lately, harder and harder to find in this condition.
1590mm wide
1995mm high
615mm deep
550mm internal depth
