Antique/Vintage Kidney Shaped Skirted Wooden Vanity/Table with Spindle Legs
Selling a unique antique/vintage kidney shaped vanity/table purchased form an Estate Sale - Rare
I was told this belonged to an elderly woman and was hers when she was young and living on an old farmstead. Looks to be hand-crafted Americana.
This is a skirted solid wood vanity/table with pull-out arms. The pull-out arms are to attach a skirt wich hides the underside. (Reminds me of the pretty ruffled skirted vanity/tables form the 1940's/50's). Sorry, but the skirt is not included.
The table top is kidney shaped with two wood drawer pulls. Also has removable screw-in spindle legs. The removable screw-in spindle legs are reinforced with vintage hand slotted screws and what looks to be hand crafted metal plates on the underside.
Measures 34 1/2" long, 18" at widest point and 30" form floor to top.
It's in very good condition for it's age and to me is seems to be solid and doesn't wobble. The inside of the drawer has a couple of rough places but appears to open and shut alright. But the right back leg has had some gnawing on the bottom. I was told this happend when it was stored in the barn. But I'll leave that repair to the new owner.
The top has a natural patina wich adds to the beauty of this vanity/table. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is.
I think this is an amazing find. It's so rare to find these wonderful peices wich have not been painted or covered with Hello Kitty or My littel Pony stickers all over it.
