Rare small cabinet in solid walnut opening by two doors.

Original interior with three drawers on two rows, one large one for pants and two small ones for underwear.

Beautiful original ironwork, including two important hinges with laces, six thick entries of locks, hand cremone and two locks.

Perfect state of conservation, beautiful blond patina.

Arlesian work of the 18th century.


Dimensions :


Height : 226 cm : Width : 120 cm ; Depth : 56 cm

Our opinion :

Reserved for an elite of the bourgeoisie under the old regime, the Arlesian wedding cabinets are mostly found in monumental dimensions.
The more the model is richly sculpted and decorated with iron fittings, the more the height is important.
The wardrobe we are presenting is of the rarest size with only 226 cm high and a very pronounced cornice, designed to fit the vaulted ceiling of the small private chapel of the Provencal farmhouse where we found it.
