Object Description

A Very Good Quality Late 18th Century Mahogany Dressing
Table Mirror Having Shield Shaped Plate Above Well Figured
Bowfront Base With Three Frieze Drawers And Elegant
Strung Decoration

(Dressing table mirrors, often referred to as “toilet mirrors”
were made from the beginning of the 18th century onwards.
Designed to sit atop a dressing table, or chest of drawers, in the
bedroom or dressing room they are found in a huge variety of
sizes, woods, shapes, sizes and qualities. This example
is a relatively standard design for the late 18th century, and is of
good quality construction with some attractive strung decoration.
Although originally designed to sit on top of a dressing table it is of
course most versatile and would suit a whole variety of locations
around the home. The mirror plate itself is replaced, but not brand
new, meaning there are a few old marks, but it is very much functional
for its original purpose as a dressing table mirror.)
