1715-1725 French Armoire at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York – Where the English used chests of drawers to store their clothes (called tallboys), the French used armoires like this. However, I do not know the interior structure, having never seen one in a museum that I could open. That being said, while some French armoires can be quite elaborate, the style on this one is quite similar to some French-Canadian pieces I have seen before, albeit with a time lag of a few decades.
