Antique 4-Door Cupboard or Armoire circa 1600's Still Beautiful and Unrestored

$19,500

About

Generally, as soon as we unpack our container shipments from France, we pretty much know what we have, its age and country of origin. This antique cupboard or antique armoire has us a bit mystified as to its birthplace. Deciding how old was not difficult, but who made it and where was it made, we have no definitive answer. The hardware and hinges, look almost identical to some 17th century desks we have from Spain. What we do know, is that the cupboard came out of the Chateau Estancarbon, which is located in the Haute-Garonne department (region) in southwestern France, near Toulouse (Haute-Garonne is part of Occitanie and surrounded by the departments of Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers, Tarn-et-Garonne, Tarn, Aude, and Ariège while bordering Spain in the south. Our buyer sent this cryptic answer from the auction expert; “The auction man he say à never seen before the expert to say this is my first time look one buffet (cupboard) for both of us is XVI-XVII century and is on very good condition.” The condition is quite remarkable and there are only a few minor prior repairs and amazingly, there are two original keys and both locks actually function. Would have loved to hire their handyman, for this never happens. This could be constructed of white oak, or could be elm or any number of different species with similar graining. All our workshop has done, is to thoroughly wash the antique cupboard and let it air dry. There is a small part of me that says we should wax it, but we can always do that later. There appears to be little to no stain left on our antique cabinet and it’s kind of nice that way, for it would blend seamlessly with both modern and antique furnishings.
