Although King Louis XIII ruled from 1601 -1643, he had a profound influence on French furniture design for hundreds of years later. This Louis XIII style French armoire, was handmade in the 1700’s and because technology has created the thin television, the prices of antique armoires has dropped dramatically. Typically, these would sell for $7500-$9500, but we have witnessed the prices going down by half. The structure of this French armoire is in very sound and someone in France obviously replaced the shelves and to be quite honest, all we did on the exterior was a fresh coat of imported beeswax. Great looking armoire at a fantastic price.
