Carved Mahogany Dressing Bureau with Attached Mirror, circa 1830

About

Boston, circa 1830. The coved rectangular dressing mirror frame suspended from flanking carved scrolled brackets on two short drawers with flanking colonettes set back on a knee hole or pedestal-end case with four drawers in each pedestal end with an arched central drawer, resting on a molded base. Measures: H 66¾, W 57½”, D 21½”. This is a masterpiece of the form, and is superior in quality. Only Isaac Vose Jr. and the firm of Emmons & Archibald, the finest cabinetmakers in Boston, are known to have made furniture of this quality in Boston. The form itself, a pedestal end-dressing bureau, is exceedingly rare if not unique. A related George IV pedestal-end dressing bureau with attached mirror or “toilet table”, shown in Ackermann’s Repository of Art, (series III, vol. 11, pl. 20) published in London in April 1828, or Thomas King’s Pl. 22, “Wash and Dress Stands” in the Supplementary Plates of The Modern Style of Cabinet Work Exemplified (London, 1829), are the probable inspiration for this example.
