Circa 1830, wonderful Dutch marquetry dressing table/chest of drawers of monumental proportions. The top section has a large rectangular framed mirror surrounded by floral marquetry and held in place by two mahogany columns which have marquetry inlay scrolling around from top to bottom and finish with a pair of large beehive style finials. At the base is a single long drawer. The mirror section is embedded into a chest of drawers with four graduating drawers, the top drawer set more forward than the rest, all smothered in floral marquetry. The gables of the chest are inlaid with urns on both sides with flowers and butterflies. At the front, the chest stands on raised tapering feet and a bracket foot at the back. Wonderful example of Dutch furniture of the period. Good colour and condition, and excellent patination.
