This exquisite French Normandy Armoire is an exquisite reproduction of an early 19th century antique armoire from Normandy, France. Beautiful solid mahogany wood was used to shape the fine sculptures and the body of the armoire. Regional motifs, including the flower basket, decorative ribbon edging framing the profile, and medallions on each door, signify the opulent status of the original owner at the time period. This antique French armoire is a great example of a rich blend of traditional French art, sculpture, and superb artistry.
Like Laurel Crown's other antique reproductions, this French Normandy Armoire has been carved, sanded, and finished by hand and put together using traditional construction techniques. We only use the finest wood, favored by cabinetmakers throughout the centuries: solid Honduran mahogany wood. Unlike the softer pine and the harder oak, Honduran mahogany is less brittle and more flexible, but what makes it particularly beautiful on this piece is the natural reddish-brown color, straight grain, and medium texture which are all accented by our gorgeous satin finish.
