1930's Vanity

By mwilcox


Vanities like this tend to be a mix of styles, which makes them appear to be much older than they really are. Examples like this one tend to be European Imports and date from the 1930's. Most are a mix of the Art Deco style, then at the peak of its popularity, with virtually every other style from Gothic to Art Nouveau. They were made in all type of hardwoods, most with maple cases, with walnut or mahogany veneers. Values for them depend a great deal on their condition, as the cost of refinishing can often exceed the replacement value of a comparable example in good condition. We would currently retail a comparable example for less than $450.00.
