19th Century French Louis XVI Painted Vanity & Chair Set is a remarkable testament to fine furniture craftsmanship!  Carved with spiral ribbon, bows, rosettes, and acanthus flourishes ~ all of which are subtly highlighted in gold ~ this set exudes a classic charm that harks back to the master architects of ancient Greece and Rome.  The oval beveled mirror pivots to adjust to your height, supported by tapered and fluted columns.  Immediately below the mirror appears a recessed upper tier with two jewelry drawers that rest atop the surface hand-painted to simulate marble.  Under that is a tier of three more spacious drawers, all of which are accessed by cast bronze ring pulls.  The entire affair is supported by tapered and fluted legs.  The matching chair which is included in this set, features caned seatback and seat, with the same motifs executed on the framework to create the ultimate companion set!
Circa 1890s
Vanity measures 57H x 41W x 20D; chair measures 37.5H x 17W x 16.5D
