This is a sublime antique French miniature armoire dating around 1880. It is a very decorative piece and is in very good antique condition. It would be very useful as a small cupboard, perhaps in a bathroom or hall and would be divine sitting on a commode in a chåteau chic boudoir.
It is made in mahogany. It sits on a sturdy carved base and has a decorative scalloped crest. It has a mirrored door with a rose and leaf carving to each of the top corners. Below the door is a little drawer with 2 wooden pulls.
The door also has a wooden pull and opens to reveal an interior with 2 shelves. The door has a spring closure.
The armoire is in very good antique condition. There is a watermark to the inside of the door. The glass of the mirror has the characteristics of age that one would expect (please see photos) in the form of bubbles, a little shadowing and one or two marks.
The armoire measures :- 51 cm (20 inches) high x 26 cm (10.25 inches) wide x 12.5 cm (4.9 inches) deep.
A gorgeous little armoire to add an authentic antique French finishing touch and another divine brocante find from La Belle Étoffe.
