Exquisite Antique, French Louis Xv, 3 Door Walnut / Burl Armoire, Lqqk:
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 Oregon.
