Dressing table

Dressing table 1820-1835:In Britain painted satinwood furniture based on styles of the 1780s and 1790s remained popular until at least the 1830s. Cabinet makers adapted and changed the designs slightly to satisfy the fashions of the time. This dressing-table was possibly adapted from a design published in 1788 for a combined writing- and dressing- table. It may have been made in the 1830s as there are hand made screws used in the construction and handles made of Sheffield plate.
