I have two solid wood antique pieces of furniture made by a company called Antiques 2000 over 20 years ago.
It’s an armoire and a matching buffet, in the French Country Provincial Louis XV style, in dark espresso.
These pieces are not antiques, but they were designed and built and painted to appear to be real antiques from the French Provincial period.
I know antiques somewhat, and they are so well done that when I first saw them I was sure they were at least 100 years old probably more.
I was wrong, however, they were built by a company who specializes in replicating actual antiques. They are built from the bottom up, and every single thing is designed to appear as if it is much older than it really is. From the type of dovetailing that was done, to the type of nails that are used, to every single detail of the piece that creates the look of a well aged piece of furniture. The antiquing process and purposeful design that was done for each piece is an artwork in and of itself.
They are solid wood pieces, handcarved, not one tiny bit of pressboard or veneer in either one of them.
Armoire - 67” tall, 43” wide, 27” deep
Buffet - 36.5” tall, 71” wide, 17” deep for side areas and protruding middle area is 20” deep
