Description:
This is a very graceful mid-18th c. Louis XV pine armoire from Normandie. The interesting and highly desirable feature of this charming armoire is its depth--only 17 inches vis-a-vis the normal 25 inch depth. This more manageable depth makes the armoire much more adaptable to current room sizes and usage, for example as a bookcase or to hide office equipment.  Additional desirable features include the "chapeau de gendarme" crown, the detailed carving on the door panels, and the original mellowed wax patina. Note the carved crescent at the bottom center of the armoire and the arabesques to the crown. As shown in the detail photo, there is wear/loss to the section of the door where the lock abraided the opposing door over its 200+ year lifespan and the left-hand escutcheon has been lost. Otherwise, the armoire is in good condition with minor restorations over the years. Thanks for looking.  I DO HAVE THE KEY!!!!!!
Price: $3,950.00
