Exquisite Antique, French Louis Xv, 3 Door Walnut / Burl Armoire, Lqqk For Sale
Exquisite Antique Louis XV French, Hand Crafted 3 Door
Walnut/Burl Armoire, Rare Arched Top.
This extraordinary unique
piece features a very rare arched top with intricate carvings that extend down
both sides and on to the feet. You can definitely tell that this particular
craftsman had a deep love for his work as this armoire is truly a work of art.
In my many years of collecting and researching rare antiques, I have never seen
another like it.
This gorgeous unit dating
to the very early 1900’s was shipped to the U.S. in 2003.
It measures 84” Tall by
81” wide and a full 24”deep. The center door is a full 35” wide (again,
extraordinary design) with the side cabinet doors at 20.5 “. The armoire
retains the original beveled glass mirrors on the face of the center cabinet
and on the inside of both of the side cabinet doors providing a panoramic view
when both side doors are open. The original un-restored dark walnut finish on
the exterior and burl panels highlights the blond interior.
The unit shows very
little signs of wear and the mirrors have the typical haze and spotting that
were common of the era. All the hardware is excellent except one door pull that
is in need of repair as the clasp that holds it to the door is broken. The
original locks on each door are intact but I do not have the key. It can be
obtained through any locksmith.
This fine example of
French craftsmanship breaks down for easy shipping. It is doweled as well as
bolted together for a perfect fit when re-assembling and I will include
assembly instructions. It is a two person job to assemble and will take
approximately an hour.
There will be a 150.00
crating and packaging fee that will be added to your final winning offer if you
chose to have the unit shipped. The reason being, it will need a special
packing crate built from scratch to protect it in transit. You are more than
welcome to pick the unit up in person or contact another shipping company for
this purpose but I am sure it will cost twice the amount and they may not take
the care that I will in packaging. Please allow one week for the packing
process and shipping arrangements. Estimated shipping weight is approximately
300 lbs and will be at the buyer’s expense. I will deliver anywhere between San Francisco and Seattle
for 1.50 per loaded mile from Medford
does not allow a best offer option for this listing but, if you have a reasonable offer...
Please feel free to contact me.
