Comment:
This extraordinary and impressive antique armoire in walnut dates to 1710 when King Louis XIV was on the throne of France. The magnificent armoire or closet was hand-selected at the Biennale de Paris in France by the late movie critic, Gene Siskel. (It is on consignment with EuroLuxAntiques.com by Siskels widow.) The beautiful, rich patina on the walnut wood is enhanced by the interesting and very decorative star designs (known as etoiles in French) in relief on the two doors. This truly is a stellar piece of antique furniture that would look fabulous in your home and provide a great conversation starter with its star-studded history! Crown molding adds to the elegant and regal air of this wonderful wardrobe. The large armoire stands more than 5 feet wide and nearly 7.5 feet high on sturdy bun feet. With three large shelves in addition to the bottom surface/shelf, there is plenty of room to store your finest linens or favorite cashmere sweaters! Being movie buffs, we grew up watching Siskel and Ebert, so it is especially wonderful to help find this exceptional armoire a new home. We'll ship this gorgeous three-centuries-old French antique to you free within the continental U.S. and most of Canada! The Louis XIV period armoire measures 89.5 inches high, 63.5 inches wide, and 28.5 inches deep.
