Antique Dressing Table

Has French Label
Spooled Cromwell Style

$675.

To use as a vanity or dressing table for your fashion doll or smaller French bebe, here is a nice antique piece of furniture to enhance your cabinet setting. It is a dark wood such as oak with spool leg detail on both the legs and the posts that hold the original, but dingy, circular, pivoting mirror. The style of furniture was first seen in Northern European countries during the 17th century. It became known as the Cromwell style and although this piece is probably from the mid 19th century, it has an unusually early look to coordinate with various doll era displays. What's nice is that it retains its original French label behind the mirror. The removable marble counter top has a diagonal crack in one corner and is probably a replacement. Attached to the rear front edge is a pressed metal fitting that provides some ornate but subtle detail.  14 3/4" Tall, 9 3/4" Wide, 6" Deep
