FINE GEORGE III INLAID MAHOGANY DRESSING TABLE
England c. 1760-80
Item # 702LUP11M 


Crafted in the third quarter of the 18th century, this most fine George III period dressing table makes an exquisite overall impact with it’s intricate pair of patera inlays on the top.  This opens outward and rests suspended using the strength of the hinges and angle of the wood to reveal a tidy organized interior replete with inkwells, small lidded spaces and a mirror that raises to the desired angle using a hinged support.  It allowed for orderly storage of beauty products and other small things that may be easily lost.  The craftsman utilized a most excellent selection of mahogany planks for the work, particularly evident in the undistracted grain flow of the back of the table.  Years of waxing and gentle use have mellowed the surface to a wonderful cognac hue, the surface silky to the touch from gentle rubbing.  The front hosts a faux top drawer over a single broad lower drawer, the oak secondary woods carefully hand dovetailed with crisp little pins and fine joinery.

A most striking presentation piece, while also being a quite practical for storage and organization of smalls, this is an excellent piece in a very fine state of overall condition.

Measurements:  35 1/2” H x 59 5/8” W (open); 31 1/2” H x 29 3/4” W (closed); 18 3/4” D

Condition Report:
Bail pulls, brass knobs on interior lids and brass handles on sides are replaced (bails and side handles are period replacements, quite early).  Locks untested, no key.  Some stringer inlay losses and replacements, upper corner of top drawer with replaced inlay.  Some patching to mahogany veneers, one piece of molding replaced.  Silvering loss to early mirror.  Old refinish, minor scuffs, abrasions and wear as expected.  Overall a very fine presentation piece.
