Southern Louisiana Creole Carved Walnut Armoire, 18th c. and later, the curved corner stepped crown over double inset panel doors with short iron fiche hinges centered by a fluted carved stile opening to interior shelves and a belt of three drawers with a serpentine scalloped skirt, flanked by curved stiles and inset panel sides, on cabriole legs joined by a serpentine scalloped skirt, H.- 72 in., W.- 50 1/2 in., D.- 21 in. Note: This Armoire came from a local Faubourg Marigny estate. The home is believed to be one of the original homes built by Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville when building the "subdivision" on his family plantation in the early 19th c. While it is impossible to say if the piece was original to the house, it sat in the parlor of the primarily untouched main house where there was still no electricity or running water.
