Black Lacquer Queen Anne Japanned Dressing Table, England, circa 1750


This is a rare form in warpage decorated lacquer surface and a delicate table that is certainly a survivor. The original top retains its first decorative chinoiserie embellishments, as do the drawers, sides and back. Looking at the images, one sees a voluptuously shaped skirt with strong hoofed Queen Anne cabriole legs. It’s enjoyable to see the gentle war page which has occurred over time to its original top. The cut-out in the front apron is quintessentially Queen Anne and very smartly stylized. The drawer layout is typical of this form. Black lacquered furniture with Chinese motifs is well illustrated in the literature (see below). A related worktable can be found in our inventory (search 1stdibs for sw00385). The brasses are period replacements, however, no new holes were drilled, and all parts are original. (See construction images). These pieces are very decorative alongside an upholstered chair or against a wall, accommodating lamps nicely.
