FINE ART DECO AMBOYNA, BRASS AND GLASS VANITY
France c. 1930's, unsigned; in the manner of Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann
Item # 704BHU24O 


A most finely crafted and preserved vanity from the Art Deco period and almost certainly originating in France, the piece is covered with the exotic amboyna wood veneers for a mottled and chaotic effect.  The balance of the angular and the curved are perfectly held in the form, the curvature of the console sides flowing harmoniously with the concave drawer fronts, circular mirror and rounded glass knobs and edges of the primary surface; but the stacked angularity lends a boxiness that is modern and clean.  It remains in very fine original condition, owing mostly to the precise craftsmanship throughout; each drawer remains tight with the large handcut dovetail joinery locking the back corners together.  For the passionate collector and decorator in the Art Deco form, this is an exquisite period piece that deserves strikepoint placement in a room.

Measurements:  47 1/8” W x 17 3/4” D x 52 1/4” H

Condition Report:
Mirror replaced, glass handles replaced (two originals retained, we had the replacements perfectly formed in replication), original copper hoops securing glass handles.  Glass table surface with some scratches.  Chips, abrasions and cracking to veneers throughout as expected - images clearly depict this.  Overall remaining in outstanding original condition.
