Antique French Burr Walnut Dressing Table
This stunning antique French dressing table is very high quality & has fabulous features. The wood looks like a very tight burr walnut, but it could be something more exotic like Amboyna. We have had it polished, however there is natural ageing showing mainly on the top, which give it more character & in keeping with the rest of this piece. The well defined gilt bronze mounts, candle holders, feet & handles are amazing quality. Please enlarge the images to see how nice they are. You will see that the gilding has rubbed in places & you can see the bronze underneath. See the amazing detail everywhere, especially the floral decoration running up either side. It's even on the tighteners for the mirror & on the feet. The adjustable mirror is bevelled & there are three drawers in the table, with lovely handles. The back is all polished too & the mirror can be taken off when transporting. I would say this dressing table days to around the 1890-1900 period & it's in good condition all over.
