ALEXANDER ROUX VANITY

Gorgeous Rococo rosewood Victorian dressing table or vanity made by Alexander
Roux, NYC. The original oval mirror has a open carved floral crest and side
supports. It is attached to the original white marble that has an ornately
shaped edge and recessed interior – a most attractive and unusual feature. The
marble sets into the top of the vanity base. There are carved corners on the top
of the base. A shaped front drawer with a lovely satinwood divided interior is
in the middle. The front of the drawer and sides of the skirt are carved. The
four graceful cabriole legs have carving and are supported by open carved cross
stretchers. A large carved finial decorates the middle of the base. It appears
to have the original castors.    We are offering a table that matches this vanity.  Please call for photos and details.  When comparing the various
elements on the vanity and table we can declare with certainty that Roux was the maker of this piece. Important NYC made case pieces from this period are
difficult to find. This is one of the best vanities we have ever seen offered for sale!   Circa: 1850
Dimensions: 81″H x 50″W x 23.5″D
Finish: We believe that a previous owner had this piece polished. The wood has a rich
patina and the vibrant grain of the rosewood is on glorious display.  Price:  $14,950
