Fine antique French 18th Century to earliest Napoleonic era 31" hand carved wood wall hanging or free standing display vitrine or shelf unit with figural & foliate carvings, cabriole style front legs and wonderful condition! An attractive piece of furniture with that warm aged finish and all of the carved detail. The piece stands 24" without the narrow top spires and carved cornice (all of which come off easily for shipment as they're held to the top with dowels). The cornice has a wonderful shaping, carved in solid wood and has what appears to be a cross or perhaps crest at the center. The base is deeper and has the matching turned spires with the front accented by scrolling foliage and two unique mice figures sniffing at what is likely a piece of cheese, delightful. This has been my favorite miniature vitrine, and has hung in my other home for years as a hand towel and toiletries wall shelf (see final photo). A fabulous piece to display a collection of small figurines or just about whatever your imagine comes up with. About the size of those great old French Bru doll sized armoires that we've offered in the past and it could easily be worked into a display of that sort. 

Good-very good condition. As you can see in the close-up images, there are some worm or bug holes visible in the front panels but nothing is active. There is an age or drying split in the back panel and a bit of staining here and there. See pictures for all measurements.
