You will feel gorgeous as you get ready for the day while gazing into this Circa 1900 French Empire Style Mahogany Dressing Table. It has the classic much-loved decorative motifs of the French Empire Period. Brass appliques and mounts of Hermes, swan necks, palmettes and torches adorn the solid mahogany frame. The presentation of the piece is completed with brass pulls in the shape of laurel wreaths and paw feet. Functionally, it has one large drawer and two smaller drawers on each sides for accessories or makeup. The mirror is a cheval mirror that can be tilted up or down. It has two, built in, two-arm sconces on each side to illuminate at nighttime.
A signature can be found underneath, on the edge, where the mirror is screwed on. Although it is solid mahogany, the top and sides have a lovely crotch mahogany veneer that captures the lovely book-match pattern generated when the first primary branches evolve from the main tree trunk.
This dressing table was also seen in the Chicago Fire TV show, season 8 episode 19 of 2020.
