A George II Irish Elm Dressing Table – Part Four

The solid drawer fronts of the dressing table are lipped on three edges and moulded on all four edges. Lipped drawer edges enjoyed brief popularity on all types of case furniture between 1730 and 1760; coexisting with the more abundant cockbeaded drawers which were introduced circa 1720 (and continued throughout the eighteenth-century and beyond).

Lipped and moulded drawers.

Moulded top, drawers and legs.
