An original early 20th Century French marble top wash stand. We acquired this from a private buyer that purchased the piece in an antique store in Paris, whilst living there. It is a large piece of impressive scale and with many touches of quality. The weight of the piece, together with the quality of the inlaid veneer and the original brass ware all point to an expensive item when new. It would date to around 1910-20’s. Produced from a mixture of fruit and satinwood it has many fine touches of veneer work – including the central octagonal door centre pieces and the border work to the doors and drawers. With heavy weight original brassware displaying reed and ribbon pattern to the drawer handles and also the lower door drop handles.  A beautiful piece that would not have to be used as a wash stand or in a bathroom. It would equally make a beautiful hall table, living room sideboard etc. The rear upstand easily removes by four screws if you prefer a simpler finish to the top to give it more of a sideboard/ console table look.

With storage in two drawers and a deep bottom cupboard (removal or height adjustable shelf) it offers plenty of very useful and stylish storage.

Dimensions:

131.5cm High (top of rear upstand), 102cm High (marble top), 111.5cm Max width, 52.5cm Max Depth
