Chair: 34.25" H x 16.75" W x 21" D

Provenance: The Royal Hotel, Naples; Private Collection


Very good condition. Vanity has been restored at some point. Light scratches or scuffing. The back edge with an area of repaired veneer. Newer finish with minor writing indentations which are not noticeable unless examining closely. Drawers have been lined in leather.  Brass with light patina. Mirrored glass appears original and has some minor losses. A second set of drill holes have been made to the back of the vanity. Both sets of holes are stripped resulting in the mirror not holding tightly to the vanity. Chair in very good restored condition with occasional minor wear. Newer fabric with some minor soiling.
