Of excellent colour and patina.
Nb. This mid-Georgian walnut lowboy may also be referred to as a side table, dressing table, writing table, or vanity.
Raised on elegantly-drawn cabriole legs with two short drawers above one long drawer in the apron.
The top correctly quarter-veneered, and inlaid with herringbone lines throughout. Mounts and locks apparently original.
