Rare Boulle Dresser
Since I have studied the Boulle furniture for a long time, I don’t believe I have seen this particular dresser in the past. It has a swivel mirror that fits right into a lovely scalloped frame. The frame has a scalloped border on top and then comes down on the sides with an extension out to the sides.
It is mounted on a marble top which has flanking drawers mounted at the base of the mirror. There is a long drawer under the marble top that extends over the two doors below. The white banding separates one section from another. Lastly, there are two front carved corner posts that are mounted on each side base and extend forward to incorporate the posts. This is certainly of the Victorian period with all its special features.
Measurements: 7-1/8”h.x 4”w.
Circa: 19th Century
