Late 19th Century French Louis XV Carved Walnut Armoire Bookcase from Provence
This antique cabinet was crafted in southern France, circa 1890. The armoire sits on scrolled feet decorated with hand carved acanthus leaves over a very ornate apron embellished with a pierced center shell, and floral and leaf decor. The bonnet top has an elegant hand carved shell cartouche flanked with foliage and rose motifs on both sides. The bookcase has two carved doors with raised panels and glass in the upper section; the inside reveals one adjustable shelf with drawers, but will accommodate more shelving if necessary. The display piece is in excellent condition with exquisite carvings, and a rich walnut patina. Original lock and key. Measures: 52″ W x 21″ D x 94.5″ H.
