Stunning 1920s Dressing Table (hw709)

This item is available for delivery to some areas of the UK - please enquire.

This is so totally superb, so very, very beautiful and so very, very rare. The delectable boudoir set consists of a large solid wood dressing table, stool and triple standing vanity mirror. The set dates to the 1920s and is 100% completely original and authentic. It is truly amazing that the three pieces have stayed together to this day. This quality furniture would have graced the bedroom of a very well-to-do lady, providing a comfortable and luxurious setting for her to apply make-up and style her hair in readiness for a society do or important date.

Each piece is sublimely pretty with soft cream paint and swags and sprays of the prettiest pink roses and flowers. The floral detail and the crackle-effect is entirely handpainted in enamels, which has ensured its longevity. The style and shape of the dressing table and stool is simply divine and the dressing table has eight shapely feet, each with roses painted on them - both back and front! There are three drawers and two cupboards with doors. The two smaller drawers have such pretty little rose swags whilst the central drawer is gorgeous with its cupid's bow shape and large rosy decoration. Both doors open to reveal a cream finished interior with shelves (yes, all original too!) The top of the dressing table is so beautiful it seems a shame to cover it with accessories and make-up! Dainty roses in the corners flank the large central design which is perfectly pretty with its pink roses and rosebuds, blue morning glory and delicate garden flowers.

The delightful crackle glaze effect which intermingles with the sweetly painted flowers and covers all the pieces in this set is entirely handpainted too! The stool bears the same pretty roses on its frame and corners of the feet, with its original comfy seat set into the frame (not shown in photos.) The triple mirror is entirely freestanding and consists of three shapely framed mirrors, with a central tilting mirror. The frames bear the exquisite cream paint, delicate crackle glaze and pretty roses. The central frame has a pink pinline around it, which mirrors the pink edging to the dressing table. Because the mirror is freestanding it could be used elsewhere, thereby turning the dressing table into the perfect desk for use in a feminine inspired study.

Never before have we seen such a beautiful set of bedroom furniture - and we may never see its like again, which makes this exceptionally rare and extremely desirable!

The dressing table is approximately 45" wide, 30.5" high and 18" deep. The stool is approximately 18" by 14" and 17.5" high. The triple mirror is approximately 25" at its highest, the central tilting mirror is 15.5" wide, the two side mirrors are each 8.5" wide. Both the dressing table and stool have more wear than the mirror, which has very little wear with some minor silvering in a couple of places. The stool has wear to the legs and the seat (the seat is not shown; the material cover is worn so you may prefer to re-cover with your own fabric.) The desk has age-related wear to the painted finish and some general overall markings. The left hand side and left hand area of the top have more wear, as does an area across the back of the top. The floral decoration remains more intact than the base paint because it is handpainted with enamels which are considerably more hardwearing - please don't let their condition allow you to think they were added later - they are 100% original to the furniture. The two doors each have an escuschion missing. One of the door catches does not close tightly but the door will stay closed. All pieces are sturdy and functional.
