A Louis XVI marquetry dressing table or ‘perruquiere’, the rectangular top divided into three framed parquetry panels, the outer two hingeing outwards to reveal box sections, while the central section reveals an adjustable mirror. The front with three drawers on square tapering legs. The different geometric marquetry panels on all sides appear to display and being evidence of the craftsmanship of the cabinetmaker perhaps to qualify as a mâitre ébéniste. The design of the dressing table with its consequent use of geometric patterns, i.e. lozenges, cubes, triangles etc. within its strict outline in shape appears almost of a modern concept.
