Very Decorative pair of late 18th/ early 19th century pine Armoire Doors from France in the remains of very ancient paint. The doors are in their original untouched and slightly 'beaten up' state , showing the faded remains of grey paint over an older rusty red and now displaying a historic and highly decorative patination. The doors cry out to be used to clad a wall cupboard and where they will create a wonderful faded or shabby look for true lovers of decadence. Measuring 57 inches high x 45 overall width, the doors have their original metal doorlock, hinges and shaped escutcheons (front plates). Circa 1780-1820, they were carved in the traditional 'Louis XV' style.
