Antiques & Vintage Dressing Table FAQs
Who invented the dressing table?
Dressing tables were originally small tables in the toilet and they had up to three drawers. In the late 1600s, these tables became part of social activities as the hours of makeup routines among wealthy aristocrats and the nobles became a time for gossip and exchange of news. By the 18th century, these old dressing tables became a symbol of social standing. In the 1700s, two French women popularised them: Madame de Pompadour who would receive guests in the morning sitting at her grand dressing table, and Marie Antoinette, who was always at the forefront of fashion in her time.
Are vintage dressing tables worth a lot of money?
A vintage dressing table can cost between £300 and £595 or even more, depending on the age, material, design, condition, and other factors. These tables were created for luxury, and they had elegant designs that depicted someone’s wealth and power. They also were made with materials that were of top quality, such as mahogany, which was why they could last for several years. They had high-quality finishing, which means you wouldn’t have to make a lot of repairs or touch-ups. The value of these pieces would increase over time, making them worth the investment.
How can I get my antique dressing table valued?
It’s best to take your antique dressing table sets to a professional appraiser for valuation. The professional has to see your item in person to be able to assess it accurately. You can search for one with the help of the internet, while you’re searching as much information as you can about your item. You can also approach your local antique dealers who can appraise your item for you, and some of them do offer free valuations. They can also recommend you to a reputable appraiser.
Do all vintage dressing tables have mirrors?
While we can’t imagine dressing tables without their eye-catching huge mirrors, not all of the vintage and antique versions had one. However, a vintage dressing table with mirror was more popular, especially because by the 1900s, glass became easier and less expensive to produce. The mirrors were no longer small and delicate and instead they became the dominant feature in every vanity table, and they’ve remained to be so up to this day. You won’t easily find a vintage vanity table without a large mirror.
