Armoure dating

Antiques were all sanded by hand and the surface should feel slightly uneven and not completely smooth.

Another very good indication of age is the nails and screws that were used in the armoire.

An armoire was once considered a very necessary piece of furniture in many homes.

It wasn’t until the middle of the 20th century that architects began including more closets into their designs.

If the armoire has any carved areas, run your finger along the edges.

Around 1830, most wood was cut by a sawmill which left straight, more even marks.

The circular saw wasn’t invented until around 1850.

So, if there are cuts that have a circular shape, the piece was made after 1850.

Also, run your hand over the exposed surfaces of the wood.
