Description

This lovely and unusual dressing chest is of continental origins and dates from the first half of the twentieth century, although it is older in style. We believe it to be constructed from solid birch with feathered walnut veneered drawer fronts, although please note that we are not 100% sure of the wood types. It has a marble top and back panel with a small marble shelf near the top. Above the shelf is a birch-framed bevel-edged shaped mirror. Beneath the marble top are small small drawers over two long drawers. The drawers retain their original brass handles and the longer drawers retain their locks, although please note that no key is present. The piece is supported on shaped legs. It is of superb quality.

The piece can be dismantled for ease of transportation.
