This excellent French Provincial double door armoire is beautifully crafted of fine walnut. Adorned with elegant, Rococo-inspired moulding and featuring exceptional well-preserved, original hardware, this armoire provides ample storage with two adjustable shelves. The first armoires appeared in France during the latter half of the 17th century and were most often the dominant feature of the home. These large cupboards were used to hold a family's belongings from linens to clothing to silver and even food.

One of the most significant features of fine Provincial armoires is the locks and hinges. Because these cupboards were a very important part of the household, little expense was spared in outfitting them with the finest hardware. Long ornate hinges, elaborately scrolled lock escutcheons and even the keys with intricate scrolling designs were an integral part of the overall design of the armoire. Often, the hinges, lock and key cost more to produce than the armoire itself.

Circa 1775
