Overview

59" wide x 19" deep (top molding) X 98" high
Carved bonnet comes out from the wall 27"

A tall and imposing Wilhelm II Vitrine for displaying books, china and/or collectibles in a warm amber-toned oak, with two glass-paneled doors and a carved pierced bonnet flanked by turned steeple-finials. Holland, circa 1845.

Aside from the inherent beauty of the design, one of the attractive features of this armoire/vitrine is its narrow depth at just 19". Previously used as a clothing cabinet in a walk-in closet, it would also function very well for towels in a large bathroom. With the exception of the glass and the knife hinges, which allow the doors to open flush, both being later additions, everything else is original.

Makes a great display cupboard, bookcase or linen cabinet!
