This remarkable Louis Philippe style armoire was made in France , circa 1890 . We purchased it in Lyon , France .

The piece is made of Oak, and has a warm, medium, Oak patina.

The armoire is part of a six piece formal bedroom set currently being sold separately on ebay. The set also includes a full size bed, huge armoire, dressing table and two night stands. Please take the time to view these because together they make up a spectacular formal bedroom set.

This is a stunning, curvaceous piece and is in very good condition.

This armoire is truly lovely, crowned along the top with a gorgeous arched cornice that is deeply moulded. The tall frieze has a central raised-panel, circle cartouche . Flanking the cartouche are scalloping, rounded, raised panels . The aesthetic of the crown is very sumptuous.
The body of the piece is composed of a large mirrored door over a wide drawer . The enormous mirror of the door is elegantly beveled , secured by a refined trim. The door opens to reveal a spacious interior with a clothing rail fixed along the top.
The drawer beneath has a detailed facade, with a rounded-side, ogee edge, raised panel. The panel is of a darker Oak tone, adding a delightful contrast. A symbol of the drawers' grand craftsmanship are the half-blind dovetail joints which bind them at the corners, as well as the graduation in size from the top to bottom drawer.

This item retains all its original French hardware including hinges, exquisite Rococo foliate handles, Rococo key plates, and skeleton key.

The chest is raised upon baluster turned legs at the front and stile legs at the rear.

Whether you have a country, transitional or classic style of home decor, this piece would make a fantastically unique antique accent. If you are wanting to make a bold statement, consider acquiring the entire set. Buying an antique piece is also environmentally conscientious, so you can indulge with a clean conscience.
If you have been looking for the piece, or set, to give your bedroom a regal touch, this lovely French, Louis Philippe armoire is a fabulous find, which should be yours!
