    New member here. I just bought an antique armoire that I really don't know much about it - other than seller's mom collected antiques and this was hers. I posted on a painting forum looki ng for suggestions. One of the members begged me not to paint it as she is certain it is a rare piece of furniture and would be ruined if painted. I am trying to find out as much as I can. I'm not sure what to even call this b/c is smaller than most armoires. It's 64" tall and 36.5" wide. Any info would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    It reminds me of an English Art Deco style wardrobe or armoire but the legs are throwing me off. I guess it could be continental......

    Kind of looks like the feet have been painted gold and the one on the left is peeling...could be metal or wood.....feet, that is.....

    The feet are wood. I will get a better photo. And - The back legs are not decorative at all.

    1920s. Not sure if American or not. Pics insuficient to tell. Not terribly valuable but would be a shame to paint if if it is in good condition. Can not tell condition from these pics either.
