Antique large French Louis style ornate carved armoire linen press.


Antique beautiful Louis style armoire linen press in gorgeous timber which is probably chestnut, with carved details. This item is probably from the C18th or perhaps early C19th, a genuine antique item.
Measurements are H249cm, W158cm, W171cm at cornice, D63cm, D68cm at cornice.
This one is in nice condition, a few scuffs here and there. The timber is beautiful and has some good age, I think it is chestnut. Inside are two original wide plank shelves, and a narrow top shelf which is a modern replacement.
In addition there are two drawers below one of the old shelves, these have been added probably in the 1950's.
The top (lid) and base are tongue and groove planks which are also not original but probably are 1950's. The carving on the front is lovely, and the sides have shaped aprons too.
This French piece disassembles for transport and for ease of installation. The construction is held together with pegs. Some have been removed and we have dowel pieces to put in once the piece is in situ. Please note that it is sold disassembled, and our delivery service does not include assembly. This is a job which requires a few hands, some patience and a rubber mallet. French furniture was made without glue so the panels do take a little persuading but once they are together the item is solid and sturdy.
Delivery of this item to most areas of England and Wales is £120, and the delivery is scheduled within approx two weeks, the piece is sold disassembled. Please send your postcode for cost and availability of courier.
