This grand antique cabinet is a 19th-century French armoire crafted in the style of Renaissance Revival furniture. The large wardrobe has a clean-lined rectangular form surmounted by a molded and dentil cornice and raised upon short, straight legs. The cabinet is simply decorated with paneled sides and two front doors inset with decorative carvings and mesh screens.

Each of the lower panels is beautifully carved in low relief with an ornate oil lamp emitting tendrils of smoke atop a spray of hanging grapes, fruiting branches, and other foliate scrollwork. Vertical fluting adds intrigue to the cabinet front and recalls the carved columns of Roman and Greek architecture. The interior is fitted with four shelves and lined with a neutral printed fabric. The locking mechanism of the doors remains functional and is complete with the original key.
