From France, this large and handsome French cabinet is known as an”Homme De Bout”. An homme de bout is a piece of furniture half the size of a normal armoire. It has an upper and lower cabinet with a drawer in between the top and bottom cabinets and it was used for storing clothing and household goods. Homme De bout translates to standing man and was the name given to this type of furniture after the French Revolution. Legend has it, that it was used as a hiding place for armed Royalist insurgents during the Revolution. The middle drawer’s internal boards were removed allowing a man to stand up in the piece and hide!
