This extraordinary, palace-size French Empire Revival armoire dates from circa 1900, and measures 98" (8 ft 2 in) tall, 60" (5 ft) wide and 22" deep. It features extensive and massive bronze mounts throughout by the French bronzier Leon Kahn, who according to Sotheby's was a leading bronzier working in France in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Underside of mounts bear the stamped mark "KAHN". We have found no other markings and the cabinet maker is unknown. The pediment has neoclassical guilloche, reed and tie, and foliate motifs. The frieze and side panels feature patera, rosettes, and egg and dart motifs. And the center door has putti and swags, lion mask, and lower panel with classical mask, arrow and drapery and foliate motifs. The sides feature floral and geometric parquetry inlay and marquetry inlay depicting flaming torches, surrounded by bronze mounts with foliate and tied ribbon motifs. The cabinet rests upon four enormous animal claw and ball feet. Each side cabinet and center cabinet have adjustable notched selving with two shelves each. Overall condition is very good. There is some crackling to the parquetry noticeable on the sides, and scrapes and small chips here and there near the base.
