Object Description

An extremely rare and fine George I burr walnut dressing mirror raised on ball and bracket feet.

The drawer linings of this piece redefine the meaning of fine linings (see images). The burr walnut case is finely lined with feather-banding as are the one long over three short drawers. The shaped mirror is of typical Queen Anne/early George I design and bordered with an intricate cross-grain moulding of walnut.

Dressing mirrors of this fine quality from the first quarter of the 18th century are extremely rare and rarer still on ball and bracket feet. The ball and bracket foot was only in production for a very short period of time and has been noted on only a handful of exceptional pieces all made in London by some of the great cabinetmakers of the 18th century to include, Peter Miller and Coxed and Woster.
