An authentic "Schrank" or folk art armoire or closet was hand carved and painted in southern Germany during the 1700's.
A traditional dowry gift to a wedding couple, there are faint monograms "HS" inside a laurel wreath. The graining and delicate painting has had restorations over the centuries, and has been preserved with clear varnish.
Hand crafted of pine with wooden pegs and hand hammered faceted nails, every surface has hand planing marks from a skilled country carpenter. There are shrinkage separations from age.The crown and feet were restored many years ago.
The door has a wonderful hand wrought iron open lock and key that still work. Inside, the adjustable shelves on the left are later, right shelves are about 100 years old but not original.
Measurements are 47 1/2" wide, 26" deep and 65" tall.
