MCM Kidney-Shaped Vanity with Mirror

This is a nice little Mid Century Modern (1940s-50s era) kidney-shaped vanity with mirror. 

However, unlike the Aristo-Bilt kidney desk & chair set previously posted, this vanity has Queen Anne style legs instead of straight ones. 

The vanity also has two raised drawers on top, and apparently the mirror was originally attached (the screw holes on back of each of the drawers on top indicate some kind of frame for the mirror).

The mirror shows where the framing held it vertically, instead of how it’s now resting horizontally on the vanity.  The auction house that sold it to me said it came without the frame, which apparently was a fairly large piece as you can see when looking down on the top drawers… there are lines showing where that frame rested, in addition to being attached behind those drawers.  One of the small drawers contains a drawer pull larger than but identical to those presently attached to the piece, which adds to the minor mystery.

Condition:   Very good, but needs to be cleaned up due to age, use and dings.  The large drawer is rather a mess inside. Although the set isn’t perfect, it would perk right up and look at home in most bedrooms (or large baths) once refinished.

Dimensions:  The desk is 36″ W x 17″ D x 30″ H.

Price:  $125.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.
