The Drawing Room of Newport.
Located in Newport Rhode Island
# 7119. An American Empire-Gothic Armoire. Rosewood, interior birds-eye maple. Circa 1840. Size: 93" tall x 60" wide and 20" deep. Consistent from the workshop of Joseph Meeks and Sons of New York City. Purchased before WWII at a local Newport, RI auction by Col. Holmes for his mansion (The Castle) on Greenough Place in Newport. The Col. furnished the home because he rented apartments to local Newporters. Condition: The rosewood veneer should be "reworked" to bring out the beauty of the wood. Each door had three hinges of which one is missing. There is a hinge at the top and bottom of the door. The lock is intact, we have no key and the handle on the right door is modern. Over the decades we have purchased several pieces from "The Castle" including Empire pieces of note.POR.
