Art Deco Streamline Modern Machine Age Chrome Maple and Black Make Up Vanity

$3,495

About

Fabulous Art Deco, Streamline Modern, Machine Age, Art Moderne, International style, or Bauhaus make up vanity in chrome and maple with a black top which is possibly made of one of these three materials: Fabrikoid, Bakelite, or Cat-O-Lite (Catalin). Likely and original station from a beauty or barber shop. Most of this type of furniture was produced by Troy Sunshade or Royal Metal however this piece is not marked except for the Sterilizer sign on the glass window in one of its drawers. It is in amazing original condition. It does have minor signs of age, including a blurred ring on the top where something sat and small spots of rust and pitting to the chrome, but nothing outstanding. Please see photos, circa 1930s-1940s. Just look at this incredible piece of furniture!!! It has been in my collection for probably circa 30 years and is difficult to let go…but time for someone else to enjoy its beauty rather than be hidden away in my stash room! This is a true piece of vintage design history. Originally, we are sure, from a beauty shop or barber shop and can be called by many design styles: Art Deco, Streamline Modern, Machine Age, Art Moderne, International style, or maybe Bauhaus. You choose. It is comprised of a tubular chromed steel frame, a two-drawer maple cabinet with chrome edged black plastic (Fabrikoid, Bakelite, Catalin?) top, and a chrome framed round attached mirror. One of the drawers has an oval window with a Red Cross insignia and “Sterilizer” decal. Both drawers have a round chrome knob with concentric circle design. This is the perfect little make up vanity for your master bedroom or, if you are lucky enough to have one, your dressing room. No matter your design style this beautiful piece of American furniture design will fit right in. You need to make it yours! Vanity size: • O/A height 57.5 inches • Surface height 30 inches • Side rail height 31.25 inches • Width 31 inches • Depth 15 inches • Knee space 23 H x 27 W inches • Diameter of mirror 24.25 inches • Weight 45 pounds Crated size: • Height 37 inches • Width 37 inches • Depth 23 inches • Weight 65 pounds.
