18th C Louis XVI Marquetry Dressing Table

ANTHONY SHORT ANTIQUES
A very fine 18th century Louis XVI Geometrical marquetry dressing table or coiffeuse. The rectangular top divided into three framed parquetry panels, the outer two hinging outwards to reveal box sections, while the central section reveals an adjustable mirror. The front with four drawers and writing slide, all standing on square tapering legs terminating on brass caps. The different geometric marquetry panels on all sides appear to display and being evidence of the craftsmanship of the cabinetmaker perhaps to qualify as a maître ébéniste. The design of the dressing table with its consequent use of geometric patterns, i.e. lozenges, cubes, triangles etc. within its strict outline in shape appears almost of a modern concept.

Anthony Short Antiques first opened an antiques gallery 21 years ago in Antwerp. I am following my father's footsteps, having been in the antiques trade for more than 50 years in Knokke-Zoute, Belgium.

In 2008, I decided to move with my family to Petworth in the UK and left my successful shop in Antwerp to start up a whole new adventure.

In June 2008 I started first dealing in antiques from our small premises in East Street, Petworth. Having looked for some time, I found a large showroom nearby the Market Square in Petworth, ideally suited to display my large stock of antique furniture and works of art.

It was now time to start another new challenge, as I have decided to open a shop in the heart of Bruges, Belgium. The new gallery is located in the centre of Bruges on the Burg, opposite the Town Hall and The Basilica of the Holy Blood.  I still live and work in the UK and clients are welcome to view items by appointment.

I will continue to attend my usual antique fairs on the continent, the Art Nocturne Knocke Fair, Eurantica in Brussels and Antica in Namur to keep in contact with my loyal clientele. "It is thanks to them that I am where I am today!".

I hold a large and varied collection of 18th and 19th century quality antique furniture, featuring fine antique mahogany furniture of the Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods embracing designs by Chippendale, Sheraton and Hepplewhite, featuring fine walnut furniture of the Queen Anne period, English and Continental Oak and Country furniture, decorative antique objects, antique prints and antique silver.
