circa: 1910 width: 76 height: 81 length: 28 This beautiful antique mahogany triple armoire was hand-crafted in Edwardian England around 1910. Over the years, the mahogany has developed a lovely patina that enriches the its distinct, wispy grain and lustrous complexion. Complementing the mahogany are a variety of characteristically Edwardian inlays, including satinwood, ebony wood, flame mahogany and quarter veneers. The bowfront central section of the triple armoire also looks quite elegant, as do the dental moulding and the darker hand-carved knobs, which form a wonderful complement to the mahogany. The interior sections of this antique armoire feature shelving and solid-brass hanging bars; there are two shelves but three areas for shelves, meaning you can configure this piece to suit your needs. In the pictures shown here, the right section of the armoire does not have a shelf so that longer garments may be hung from the bar. Each drawer features hand-cut dovetailed joints, which indicates fine craftsmanship and firm construction, both of which are clearly evident in this antique armoire.As do most antique armoires of its kind, this triple armoire does break down into five pieces--the top, bottom and three main sections--and this is how the armoire will ship. Although structural integrity remains strong, this armoire has sustained significant wear, including half of a missing backplate on one knob, stress marks along the base, a missing door pin (pictured below), minor veneer crackling (pictured below), and warped left and right doors. The doors do operate smoothly and stay shut, however. The locks also do not function, and the center door is missing an escutcheon. This mahogany antique armoire offers not only classic Edwardian elegance but also an incredible amount of storage space and versatile utility, so it would make an excellent addition to any home furniture collection!
