This rare and unique antique bonnetiere is one of our favourites and has arrived recently from France. It has been crafted from walnut and the aged patina is superb. Excuse so many photos but it is very hard to capture and show the old and warm timber well. The carved stars are so unusual and beautiful. This would be early 1800’s. The front feet have some damage as shown int he photos but it is usable as is or it would not be a hard repair if desired. A new lock has been added with the original and working key. The bottom base board has been replaced. As with many antique armoires the door sits slightly off level and there are some old borer holes which is only mentioned for accuracy reasons and this attests to its authenticity. This beautiful piece would have many uses and the buyer will not be disappointed.
SIZE approx: 201cm high x 80cm wide at top x 66cm wide at middle x 53cm deep at top x 45cm deep at middle.
