We are pleased to be offering today this beautiful fabulous American style dressing table that was built in the cabinet shop of Nathan Margolis in Hartford, Connecticut. The Margolis shop was active from 1894 to 1973. Margolis came from Lithuania in 1892. Of interest is that Israel Sack also apprenticed in Yankova, Lithuania also. Shortly after arriving in Hartford, he began making copies of classic early American furniture. Wallace Nutting referred to Margolis as the best cabinetmaker in America. His original records and patents were sent to the Henry Frances Dupont Museum in Witherford, Delaware. This piece is branded on the inside of the backboard “Margolis 1938.” This signature was used from 1930-1938. This fine dressing table or low boy is carved from solid mahogany. It is hand made from top to bottom. It has a rectangular top with bevel edge and notched corners. The case is fitted with a long drawer over three short drawers. The center drawer is carved with vines. They are all mounted with solid brass hardware that is typical of the time period. The case has engaged reeded corners and is raised on and supported by tapering cabriole legs with shape returns and nice circular pad feet. The piece is extremely well made. The color is a rich reddish brown mahogany. The overall size is 34 inches wide, 21 inches deep and 30 inches high. The condition is very good. It would benefit from a nice polishing. It is a great investment piece. Shipping starts at $285 for a driveway delivery in our normal area which is New England. Please contact us prior to purchase with your zip code to confirm what it would cost you if outside of New England for shipping.
