Armoire, French Burl Walnut in the Style of Louis XV Painted and Gilded Hinges

US$12,800Asking Price

About

This is one of those exceptional armoires that compelled me to purchase, for I am an absolute sucker for burl walnut and this armoire was executed to the nines. Look at those painted and gilded hinges; in 25 years I have never seen that attention to detail. The book matching of the burl veneers down the center and everywhere you look it exudes quality, even the key is original. The expert in France claimed it was; époque Louis XV, meaning it was produced before 1774. Whether it was made before 1774 or 1800, it is quite evident the armoire is at a minimum over 200 years old and has enjoyed a very charmed life. If you are a lover of burl woods, then it does not get any better than this.
