The Ercol Dressing Table – it’s not often that I write a blog about a single piece of furniture, but this is such a stand out piece that I think it warrants a few words.
Ercol Dressing Table It really is an astonishingly elegant piece – the trademark Ercol tapered legs really work with the slim drawers and the mirror seems to set make everything else come together. It’s also extremely practical – the top is large enough to be completely functional yet the overall size is small enough to fit into virtually any bedroom – so you don’t have to keep it in a field.
As you would expect from Ercol the top section and the mirror from made of elm and the legs and mirror supports are beech. There are elegant dovetail joints forming the corners of the top section. The dimensions are:-
Width – 115cm
Depth – 48.5 cm
Height (exc mirror) – 73cm
Height (inc mirror) – 123cm
We tend only to buy these piece to order but the one that features on this page is a dressing table that we bought along with a number of other pieces. It has now been fully restored and looks absolutely magnificent. It is currently on sale for £850.
As always, visitors are welcome at our workshop in East Sussex (where these lovely photographs were taken) – call or email first to make sure that we will be there.
