Antique Bow Fronted Wardrobes were first introduced in the Late Victorian era, but was most popular in the Edwardian period, usually built using the finest Walnut and Mahogany timbers. Only a skilled cabinet maker could build this as the shape is a bow or curved at the front so is more difficult than the standard flat front. They were mainly with two doors and occasionally with a drawer below, although you can see larger triple wardrobes with this shape. Some of the renowned furniture makers specialised in these shaped pieces like Maple and Co or Wylie and Lochhead. These antique wardrobes are quite a stunning design and very beautiful pieces of antique furniture also very useful with lots of clothes hanging.
