Wardrobe or Armoire?

We went to a moving sale a couple of Saturday's ago and found the most amazing piece of furniture! What was even more amazing was the price. I think they were desperate to sell everything they owned because they were moving to a remote location in Virginia and not taking hardly anything, so they gave us an excellent price on this awesome wardrobe!

 Or is it an armoire?
Take your pick. 
I'm not sure it matters what you call it besides COOL!!!

It has all these little labels inside and places for hats, ties, shirts, pyjamas and sundries!

Sorry about the flash. It was dark inside the room.

Pretty adornments.

We're happy with it. In fact, my husband took it over since it was obviously made for a man.  I tried to get a decent shot of the label inside, but it was a no go. It's made by B&E, Walthamstow, London. The previous owner said it is from the 1920s but I can't verify this. I looked the company up on the internet when we first brought it home but now I can't seem to find the information. Arrrgh!!! And after too much time trying to find one that is even close to it, I gave up. 

We're very pleased with our $50.00 find and hope to have it for many years to come! It's not an exact match to my grandmother and grandfather's bedroom suite from 1928 that I inherited, but enough that it works. I really need to refinish that set but that's a whole other project that I am NOT ready to tackle! Because as you can see, I still need to paint my closet door. OK, the whole room needs to be painted but we're not talking about that now :)

Do you have a special piece of furniture you've inherited or found at a bargain?

Have a great day in the Lord!
