I had no idea where to put this piece of furniture, when i bought it.
After searching for similar pieces, I know a little more. It seems to be a late 18th century, fruitwood armoire from Lorraine with marquetry inlay . At the base are two drawers. This piece shows wonderful handcarved details and beautiful brass hinges and pulls.
I've found lots of wardrobes in this shape, but only a very few with marquetry inlays like this. Might be a little better in quality than the standard 18th centuty armoires?
I believe this piece is from the Lorraine Region, could be made around Strasbourg circa 1770?
