Stylish Heals Mid Century Walnut Dressing Table
A rare and stylish dressing table in walnut, part of a bedroom set which we are so pleased to have found. One owner and purchased directly from Heal’s in the early 1960s.
The design is very good with a firm leaning towards the era made by Heal’s. The walnut is of a pleasing tone with a shimmering cut of grain to the drawers, the super wave pattern to the drawers enhance the piece a treat along with the trumpet shaped knobs, a working lock and key to the main central drawer, the little sliding glass vanity storage area, the wave framed tilting mirror and the general proportions are all worthy of a mention. It goes without saying the build quality is first rate - solid wood, not veneers and crafted joints are used alongside the best grains.
The piece has enjoyed a careful and sensible session in our workshop so expect gentle aging and nothing nasty. The dressing table forms part of a set which are listed separately. As with some of Heal's bedroom sets, they chose to only add the little Heal’s ivorine stamp to the bed frame, as is the case with this suite.
A seldom seen piece from Heal’s.
