About

A mid-eighteenth century hand-planed and hand-carved walnut lowboy, originally intended as a dressing table. Walnut burl veneers on its drawers and case front. Inverted finials at the skirt of its center kneehole arch. Particularly graceful cabriole legs, ending in pad feet. Outstanding today as an end, side, hall, bedside, or even 'mixing' table with a protective tray.
