This lovely painted armoire still maintains the quality and details of the original hand-painted finish. The soft, gentle colors with delightful floral motifs are beautifully executed.
Notice the four panels of flowers in the door against a traditional faux wood brown background. Striking in this armoire is the lovely landscape painting along the lower drawer.
Impressive painting continues along the large canted sides while the date of 1834 and monogram of MM are seen under the crown.
Note the Christogram, "IHS" painted between the iron key hole and decorative iron pull.
Even the lock and key system (still functioning,1 key included) speak to the high quality of the craftsmanship of this armoire.
This original painted single door armoire has been restored so it is strong, stable and ready for use.
Age related wear include dings, old repairs, cracks/scratches, distress to paint, aged separation of wood (see back) etc. do not detract from the beauty nor function of this wonderful folk-art find.
Please review close up photos for best understanding of color and condition as each computer monitor will display differently.
