Edwardian Inlaid Satinwood Converted Drop Centre Dressing Table / Sideboard
This converted drop centre dressing table is an excellent quality piece of furniture, and it dates to the Edwardian period.
It originally started life as a dressing table which it can still be used as, but at some stage it's original oval mirror has been removed and a brass rail has been added to connect what we presume are the original mirror supports, subsequently it's since been used as a drop centre sideboard.
Whether they're original or not the brass aspects of the shaped back form such a pleasing aspect of the overall design, as do the decorative inlays and dental mouldings which further enhance the appearance of the back, while detailed brass handles are fitted to the 4 mahogany lined and dovetailed drawers.
Subtle boxwood and ebonized inlaid stringing provides more decorative appeal, and the elegant square tapering legs terminate in original brass casters.
The condition is generally good, however there are age related marks of use to mention, including some rubs, scuffs and dings here and there in the edges and corners. There are marks, surface scratches, dings and some discolouration in all 3 parts of the top, and the inlaid stringing across the right hand side of the top is slightly lifting in places.
The curved part of the back to the left of the drop centre has an age related shrinkage crack as well as a veneer and inlay repair, and there is a small chip in the front right hand corner of the right hand side of the top. Also the brass back and handles have some loss of finish and tarnishing.
