The Victorian dressing table, is in excellent original condition, having been cleaned and French polished by hand in in our workshop, therefore the finish, colour and patination is of an excellent standard. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The mirror, which is the original mirror, is in good original condition, with a very small sign of foxing, near the bottom edge in the centre (see photos). In our opinion the level of foxing is acceptable and add to the originality of the whole piece, considering it’s a Victorian mirror and over 150 years old. However, if you want the glass replacing for a new mirror, please contact us for a quote. The Victorian dressing table pedestal drawers close flush to the frame and they also retain their original turned knobs and working locks. There are some old use marks to the drawer bottoms (see photos) but nothing significant. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
