Description

A very substantial and exceptionally tidy Louis Philippe pine double wardrobe, originating from Northern Europe, Denmark or Germany.
Provenance was provided by a peg board in the sister wardrobe, written in pencil on the back : 1879, the name of the recipient and the name of the joiner who made it.
Special features: all original parts
- dove tailed throughout
- elaborated break front construction
- internal strap hinges and hand forged catches
- original brass escutcheon
- original lock and key
- moulded side- and door panels
- original fine cornice
- very nice pale period colour
- two deep moulded drawers with original turned knobs
- intricate carved mouldings and large bracketed oak feet
- excellent internal depth
- all original fittings and back boards
The wardrobe comes fitted with three original heavy shelves, organised on a ladder system, easy to fit and move. It had a rail originally, which can be replaced to have both hanging and shelf space.
The benefit of the shelves is the possibilty to use this armoire as a 'lounge' piece for general and very decorative storage or a combined linen cupboard and / or wardrobe.
As most continental wardrobes, this one also dismantles for easy access and transport.
The condition of this piece is outstanding, no repairs and no damage other than the slightest wear. A minute amount of worm holes in the left hand bracket foot, see last photo.
Otherwise the wardrobe is extremely clean and tidy.
Altogether a substantial country piece of good proportions, a wardrobe not easy to find in this condition.
Dimensions:
1680mm wide
1890mm high
640mm deep
500mm inside depth
