The Athene Armoire

25,000.00

A handsome armoire inspired by the 18th century with two finely carved front doors, flanked by decorated columns with scrolling and foliage motif, topped by carved finials. The broad surfaces of these panels enhance the extraordinary natural richness and warm patina of the rosewood. The motif in the upper part of the doors features a carved mythical owl in the center and foliate carving in the corners. The owl featured prominently in the Greek mythology and was understood to be a symbol of intelligence. 

The central motif is encompassed by classic moldings which run around the length and breadth of the front panels in a distinct pattern. The crown is shaped in the form of a demi lune with projecting corners, bordered by elegant moulding. The central motif features intricate scrolling carving. On the inside, the armoire comprises two shelves and is supported on four sturdy feet. 

Handmade and hand finished in solid rosewood. The classic lines, grandeur and harmony of stylistic elements set this armoire apart as an exquisite piece of art.
