FOLK ART FLORAL PAINTED ARMOIRE CABINET
Central Europe, circa early 20th century
Item # 911FKP09P
This is such a fun and whimsical piece with its Bohemian surface of florals on vines with rosettes encircled by flowers repeating across an ivory painted surface with primary colors of green, red and white. A pair of finials project over a chip-carved and bobbin turned crest molding, the same bobbin-and-ring turned motif used as the vertical columns between the doors. These open to reveal a large spacious interior with an upper and lower set of hooks for hanging jackets.
Simple, rustic and beautifully painted, it is an incredibly striking piece that livens up a room with its cheery colors.
