19th Century Italian Rococo Vanity with Tri-Panel Mirror is a truly rare find indeed!  The casework forms a kidney shape, and incorporates two large cabinets, three drawers, and a glass-topped surface for extraordinary functionality!  Hand-crafted from fine Italian walnut, it has been carved with bordering and shell motifs inspired by nature as befits the style, and is supported by no less than eight scrolled legs, each carved with acanthus fronds.  The lower cabinet is finished all around, so that if one chooses, one can remove the tri-panel folding mirror above and create a conveniently-sized desk for anywhere in the room.  As a vanity, it excels with the aforementioned mirror, which is carved in the Rococo style and features a main center mirror, with two flanking smaller mirrors hinged so that they can be angled to provide whatever reflection may be required.  A brace of candlestick sconces are also mounted to facilitate getting ready for the day's excitement, and they have been professionally wired with an inline switch for your convenience.
A truly special example of fine Italian style and craftsmanship!
