English 18th century lowboy

 

  The image below was just  taken on this warm day with the sun reflecting on the dark, old patina of this country oak lowboy or dressing table. This is a late 18th century piece created in rural England by a maker with a strong notion of the current taste, reflected in his execution of a table with an overhang top, a drawer arrangement with an arcaded skirt, and strong cabriole legs with hips. The feet are noted to be an Irish influence called drake feet with stockings. Partial period brass, no major replacements. Wonderful small size.
H. 28.5″, w. 32″, d. 21″.
