I believe this cabinet was handmade for French aristocracy, given the exceptional custom hand carved special designs throughout the piece!

Shipping

Due to the larger size, this item requires freight service.  White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only).  Typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.

Please note this longer time period for white glove service; no refunds will be given because of the length of delivery time.  Free pick-up is also available at our location in Shreveport, LA.

 

Condition

Good condition for its age, with normal signs of age, use, dings, scratches and imperfections.

There are no shelves included for the upper cabinet interior, but buyer could have them easily made, if so desired. 

Top of lower cabinet has separations due to the weight of the upper cabinet over the years.

Flat side panel separations, as commonly occurs over time.

I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email with any questions prior to making a purchase.  Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina…NOT for like-new condition!

 

Geaux Vintage Antiques has a large inventory of French, English and European antique furniture, as well as an outstanding selection of antique home décor.

 

“…with all that, why Geaux anywhere else?”…
