    Antique 19th century Compactum Wardrobe of Exceptional quality and dating from 1855. Of Neo Classical Design and constructed from quality Burr Ash with Rosewood and Ebony inlays. It has a cornice top with Rosewood inlaid frieze and a central arched pediment of Rosewood with fruitwood floral inlay of Classical design. There is a full length bevelled mirrored door to the centre set within a cross banded frame with rosewood and fruitwood banded edges. This is flanked on either side by a further full length door with architectural moulded panels and inlaid with pencil design of rosewood and fruitwood and fine ebony stringing. All of the doors have turned carved knob handles and it stands on a deep plinth base. It has its original brass locks by Hobbs & Co. London (1852 - 55) unfortunately there is no key.

     
    Internally it is lined in quality mahogany with three large sliding & removable burr ash trays ( which could easily be removed and a hanging rail fitted if required) above two short and two long graduating drawers all of which are mahogany lined and with original brass handles. To one side there is full hanging space with a fall front shoe cabinet to the base.
    The whole wardrobe separates for ease of transporting.
     
    Measures: 96" high x 26" deep x 21" internal depth x 94" wide ( 7ft.8")
     
    Neo Classicism in the mid 19th century was very much favoured during the Regency Period no doubt among other discoveries it was inspired and fuelled by the Elgin Marbles that were brought to Britain in 1812.
     
    There was an enormous revival of interest in Classical and Renaissance art from about 1850. When more Archaeological discoveries in Greece, Italy and Egypt around that time fuelled the imagination of designers and the use of architectural elements from ancient Greek and Roman buildings was a key characteristic of the Classical and Renaissance Revival style. This can clearly be seen in the design of this particular wardrobe.
    Quality of construction was paramount also to the design, using only the best of woods and craftsmanship.
     
    This is an exceptional mid 19th century Compactum wardrobe and in very good original condition with a lovely deep colour and patination to the quality Burr Ash & Rosewood and oozing all the charm and character of the period.
