Item Ref


Attractive large antique Victorian carved walnut mirror door triple fitted wardrobe.
A lovely large antique Victorian carved walnut wardrobe. We date this wardrobe to the second half of the 19th century.
The wardrobe comes in five sections: two single hanging sections, a central cupboard and drawer section, a plinth base and a separate cornice.
The wardrobe sits on a slightly protruding plain plinth base. The sections sit firmly in the base.
The sturdy separate cornice is of a stepped design with a breakfront design.
The front of the wardrobe is of a three panel design with the outer sections featuring a large single mirror door at each side, the large oblong mirror glass is thick and bevelled. There are ornate scroll carvings above the mirrors are the doors are fitted with ornate drop loop handles mounted on shapely backplates.
The wardrobe is fitted with locks (key supplied).
The interior of the two hanging sections are each fitted with a side to side hanging rail and numerous hooks around the rear and sides. There are later added shoe rails added at the bases.
The large central section consists of a top cupboard that has a breakfront shape with a single removable mid height shelf. The doors have heavily carved panels and is fitted with a handle that match the outer sections. The four drawer chest of drawers sits below, the top drawer has a downward canted front so that the other three drawers sit flush with the side wardrobes. The drawers are fitted with drop handles mounted on decorative backplates.
The wardrobe has a height of 82.5" (210cm), a cornice width of 85.5" (217cm), a base width of 83" (211cm), a cornice depth of 22.5" (57cm), the centre of the cornice has a depth of 25" (63cm) and a base depth of 20.5" (52cm).
This lovely large Victorian carved walnut wardrobe remains in good condition with only minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage. There are a few minor indentations, scratches and marks on some surfaces and edges from past use, primarily on the base. The mirrors show some very slight signs of foxing and two of the backplates on the drawer handles are showing some wear with some minor breaks. One of the backboard sections has been replaced in the past and the outer doors are secured with later added brass clips. There has been a repair to one of the wardrobe door handles at some point in the past and there are some usage marks to the interior base areas of the wardrobe sections.
This remains a very stylish and elegant large Victorian carved walnut mirror door triple wardrobe which will continue to provide sterling service for many years to come.
