A beautiful large Victorian figured mahogany double wardrobe. We date this wardrobe to the second half of the 19th century. The wardrobe comes in four sections, two hanging and drawer sections, the base and the cornice. The protruding cornice is of a stepped design and the wardrobe sits on a plain plinth base with rounded corners. The front of the wardrobe is of two panel design with each panel being a large side hinged door. The door fronts have central recessed panels with arch tops. The panels have well matched finely figured grain mahogany. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (key supplied). The left hand door is secured with side mounted top and bottom lever bolts. The interior of the left hand hanging section is fitted with a later addition side to side hanging rail over a lower storage drawer.
Solid and strong, with no loose joints. Full of age, character and charm. Would have been a very expensive piece when made. No woodworm. Would look great in the right location! The ash lined drawers slide freely.
