A French Louis XIII style walnut armoire with bonnet-shaped pediment, curved open side shelves, geometric motifs and original hardware from the early 19th century. This French armoire was born in the second decade of the 19th century, in an ever changing political era. A bonnet-shaped pediment overhangs two large arched doors adorned with carved geometrical motifs, typical of the Louis XIII style. The doors, which have their original hardware, open to reveal four inner shelves offering great storage opportunities. The sides are made of beautifully curved open shelves, perfect to display decorative objects of your choice. The ensemble is raised on bun feet. This French Louis XIII style piece shows a great balance between a certain linearity, playing perfectly with the more rounded lines of the pediment, sides and bun feet. Its elegant silhouette, combined with the lovely patina of the walnut wood makes this French 1820s armoire an excellent choice for any bedroom or living room.
