The light wood in addition to the piece being raised ove shelf that measures 6.5"h to the top of the armoire. The light wood in addition to the piece being raised on simple, yet shapely legs, gives this piece an element of airiness that softened the rigidity of the Empire style and made the delicacy of Directoire durable in the 1800's. Stylistically, the simplicity, sophistication and functionality of Biedermeier pieces is what makes them so popular even today. The dark finial and four floral medallions on the corners of the beveled mirror give the piece some contrast. Two new keys have been made to secure the piece and turn smoothly.Dimensions: 60.5"w x 23.75"d x 84"h (with finial attached)Left interior: 13.75"w x 20.5"d x 64"hCondition: The piece is in beautiful condition, however, the top finial has been broken off and fits exactly into its place.
