Antique Breakfront Wardrobes were first introduced in the Georgian period in solid Mahogany and was a large piece of furniture. The Breakfront was a skilled bit of cabinet making, whereby the centre section steps forward usually with a bank of drawers in the middle and two outer hanging sections. This continued into the Victorian period but different woods were introduced like Rosewood to more simple Oak. The Breakfront was only ever made on large antique wardrobes and usually by the more skilled cabinet maker, so you can guarantee they will have lots of clothes storage and interesting features like a fitted interior, consisting of drawers, slides and hanging rails or hooks. The best examples are the earlier, more simple in design wardrobes with beautifully figured full length doors. These were built by renowned cabinet makers, like Gillows of Lancaster.
