Great for a hallway, foyer, or other small space, this antique hall wardrobe was made in Europe around 1890. We recently brought it to our antique furniture store in Atlanta, GA along with a variety of other wonderful pieces.
Hand Carved Oak
The wood used on this beautiful armoire is oak. Although it was made in 1890, it was done in a Jacobean style that has been around for hundreds of years. The main characteristics of this style are the geometric pattern carvings found on the door. The darkened hinges and escutcheon are also reminiscent of the Jacobean era.
This is a very well built antique hall wardrobe. Whoever the maker was used quality techniques and materials to form a truly beautiful and long lasting piece of furniture. The oak has a lovely dark color that will continue to grow more beautiful with age. The door opens and closes easily. There is a lock and a key which works perfectly. Inside an upper shelf was added some time ago. From this shelf I-hooks were installed to allow for some hanging. This shelf is removable should you decide you don’t need it.
Unique to this piece are the hand carvings on the doors. They are extremely well done and blend nicely with the armoire.
Antique Hall Wardrobe Condition
We would describe this piece as rustic. It is a sturdy wardrobe, and the door and lock work well. It has sustained a number of minor age separations in the door and sides. This is common for solid wood pieces, where after many years the wood shrinks a little leaving a small gap. None of these affect the structural integrity of the piece. Also, the cornice has several indents and small missing pieces all around, especially on the corners. Minor old chips and holes exist as well, but nothing that detracts from the overall character of the piece.
This antique hall wardrobe is a lovely find which will function perfectly for many uses. It would be a great piece for any distinguished home or office!
The depth not counting the cornice is 19″. Finally, the cornice does not screw in to the top, but simply sits on top. It will be packaged separately for shipping.
