Before the 18th
century, people kept their belongings in boxes and trunks. Wardrobes,
first made in eighteenth-century France, provided a place to keep
clothes well-organized and undamaged. This seven-and-a-half foot
wardrobe made in Puebla, Mexico, presents exuberant lines and decoration
typical of much colonial Mexican art.
