Toilet Table and Mirror

CC010.001.013.029.003 (RS239510)

Description

Design drawing titled "Toilet Table" rendered in pencil on trace. Perspective view of dressing table and attached mirror is shown. Toilet or dressing table has rectangular form; overhanging top; two drawers with bail handles on each side of central shallow panel; inlaid or painted bellflowers at top of square legs; and cylindircal feet. Rectangular mirror frame has concave top corners; carved ornament at top; and has two oval mirrors attached at sides. Design notes and "Hooper Oct. 7 - 1905" are handwritten on drawing. Drawing appears to be a working sketch: penciled changes to existing drawing include the addition of a third drawer on each side; eliminating the oval mirrors; and changing the center mirror to one with an arched crest.
