Circa: 1890 Dimensions: 46″ wide x 20″ deep x 59″ high This is a beautiful English Victorian Gothic Dressing Table. It was made in England circa 1890. We purchased in Oxford, England. It is made of Oak and has a rich, Deep Oak Patina. It is in very good condition.
The Dressing Table is part of a formal Three Piece Bedroom Suite. The Set also includes an Armoire and Chest of Drawers. These pieces are being sold separately at this time. Please take the time to view them, for together, they create an gorgeous Bedroom Suite.
The Dressing Table has a Large Mirror at the back. The Mirror has a beautifully moulded Oak Frame. The corners are canted. The Mirror has beautifully turned Supports. Bulbous Finials embellish the tops. They are quite striking.
The Mirror is connected to a beautifully moulded Gallery which is carved with a gorgeous Diamond and Dot Pattern.
The Base consists of two Long Drawers above the Knee Hole with two Deep Drawers on either side. The facades of the Long Drawers are carved with an opulent Ovolo Pattern across the center. The Deep Drawers are carved with an intricate Linen-fold Carving.
The Drawers open to reveal roomy interiors. They are bound by intricate Dove Tail Joints. This indicates a fine cabinet maker.
The Dressing Table comes with its original hardware. This includes the Gothic Back Plates and Barley Twist Ring Pulls.
The Dressing Table is supported upon Scalloping Bracket Feet.
