Inset Shaving Stand

Stylish walnut Victorian shaving stand or ladies makeup mirror.  The top has an oval mirror with a carved crest.  The arms have fancy turned finials on the tops and applied and incised carvings.  The mirror pivots  on a threaded bolt.  The bolt has a decorative brass knob on one side but this is missing on the other (see photo).  A lovely inset rectangular colored marble is on the surface.  There is a long top drawer with key and two smaller drawers underneath on each side.  The fronts have turned walnut pulls and are decorated with half round moldings.  The tapered center stem has fluting at the top and applied buttons around the center collar.  The graceful legs have an open carved middle and incised carvings.  There are original brass castors on the feet.  A very decorative piece for the bathroom (or any other room in the house!).
