With the recent weakening of the French armoire market, it takes something really quite special to get our attention today and this one succeeded in spades. The incredible detailing and the grain of the burl wood is as nice as it gets. Note the small hand-painted highlights. Our workshop for a change did not have to do very much, for this armoire (Bressane-small cupboard) was loved for the last 250 years and was found just outside of Toulouse, not far from our warehouse. The exterior still had an old French polish that only required a little fluff and it is now quite breathtaking.
