Mid-19th Century Gentleman’s Vanity Table, Stamped "GILLOWS"

About

Very unusual mid-19th century gentleman’s vanity table, stamped "GILLOWS", circa 1850. The tabletop is hinged and when opened, it offers the two additional surfaces and internally it is all compartmentalised, along with a hinged mirror with easel fitting. The mirror is, in my opinion, beautiful but it is heavily foxed so you can't really see a lot of reflection. If you are to use the vanity table as intended, I can have the mirror glass replaced if you would rather. There is a single full width drawer which is oak lined and dovetailed as you would expect. Standing on tapered square legs and block feet. The whole piece is finished with a fine banding. If you are to use the tabletop as a side table, it will hold a table lamp with ease. Interesting and unusual piece, certainly elegant and full of style. Measuring: 30 1/4” or 77 cm high 23 3/4” or 60.5 cm wide or 47 3/4” or 121.5 cm opened width 16 3/4” or 42.5 cm deep 22 1/4” or 56.5 cm high in the kneehole.
