Armoires such as this are often called “diamond points” because of the shape of the carved panels. This rustic example has all the hallmarks of a 1700s piece: forged hardware including baluster hinges, double raised side panels and integral mouldings. It is part of the large collection of furniture and accessories assembled by John and Heather Harbinson and later acquired by the Museum.
