Rare Kestner Bedroom Bureau with Swivel Mirror
This two level bureau has a unique feature in that all the drawers and doors are curved! It is amazing to see how the drawers are made with this curve. The upper level has smaller drawers for delicate pieces- gloves, lingerie, jewelry or scarves! The area above and below this set of drawers is great for display of a candleholder, framed pictures to display on a table, a vase of flowers, a clock etc. The base of this bureau has a large center drawer and doors on the side.
The entire piece is stained in rosewood and the wood trim around the base, doors, drawers is all painted black. The swivel mirror is attached to two stationary pieces that have a cut-out design. The mirror moves back and forth easily. Around the edge of the frame is tiny gilt Dresden paper. This piece is in fine condition with no damage, repair or missing parts.
