Antique Original Painted Armoire from Austria with Canted Sides, Dated 1775

It is always a joy to discover a truly beautiful, original painted armoire and this one is an exceptional find. The skill of the painter is still seen today, revealed in the soft colors and wonderful detail in the flowers, scrolling flourishes and borders throughout. The canted sides and simple crown add dimension and character to the armoire as well. Notice in the close up photos the detailed background that was a traditional folk art style of the period, and the date of 1775 along the crown.The original heavy key and lock work. Inside, there is one long shelf and 2 short shelves along the right side. A small hanging rod is under the long shelf and an additional "upper shelf" rests in the upper portion of the bonnet.  Please examine the close up photos to appreciate the excellent craftsmanship and hand-painted folk art.  This armoire is being sold in as is/used condition as we found it in Europe. Signs of use and age-related distress to the finish are seen throughout the armoire but it is solid/stable and ready for use.
