A Very Rare Ebony Boulle Dressing Table

 

This is one of the finest Ebony Boulle dressing tables and it is in such great condition! This remarkable piece has all the rare components which we will point out here. Below the Neo-Gothic mirror is a pin cushion which is attached to the top of the small drawer. One might consider this to be a combination of a sewing table and a dressing table. (This means a revival of the Gothic style which began in the middle of the 18th century and was reintroduced in the 19th century). The Gothic mirror is so unusual and is mounted between two ivory posts. There are two drawers with ivory turned knobs which have lovely gold transfer designs of exotic leaves and if you look carefully you will see the monkey amongst the leaves. The legs are slightly turned and are delicately tapered to the bottom! What an incredible piece!
