Doll Dressing Table with Pull Out Tub #178-34 SOLD

Status: Sold
This is a very rare item perfect for the mother doll to give baby doll his bath. Made c. 1900, it is a splendid wooden doll's dressing table with two draws at the bottom and the surprise is that a hidden compartment on the side pulls out to hold a tub. The removable tin tub is lavender in color and is marked Germany on the bottom. The dresser is cream color and trimmed in a wonderful pale bluish-aqua color on the wooden knobs and delicate flowers on the front and two sides. I have never come across this wonderful, rare piece of doll furniture in all the years I have been in business. Here are the dimensions: 7" tall, 7 5/8" long when side is closed, 13" long when tub portion is open, and 4 3/4" deep. Both sides have towel racks and the two bottom drawers open as shown in the photos to hold soap, towels and clothing. Overall condition is very good...shows some foxing on the paint and some minor staining. Paint is all original.
