Identifying a Combined Large Mirror and Attached Console

Who make this type of one piece? The mirror, frame, and console are one piece. The console has a marble top. The mirror below the console is beveled for those with princess feet to utilize.

Look for identifying markings on it. You can also take the mirror to a dealer.

Hey Judy. This piece is almost 7 feet tall and not fun to transport. I found a very unreadable paper tag on the very bottom of the backside of the frame Thank you for pitching in. Sam

Thanks for posting more photos! It looks like a Victorian Style Hall Tree. Depending on where you are located, unmarked pieces can sell for $500-$1000 in the right setting. These are very hard to find where I am so you would fetch more than in a place where there are lots of these.

The best bet if you are not an experienced seller is to let an antique dealer or vintage shop either sell it for you or consign it for you. This way you will get the most exposure, most value, and you won't have to deal with the flakes and scammers on sites like Craig's List.

It is a lovely piece!! Post back how your sale goes!

Awesome commentary on my piece Pghgirl40. Thank you so much. Right now it is lying comfortably on a tented platform in my front yard. I love that "Victorian Style Hall Tree" label. Very nice.

It is a lovely piece and I am excited to learn more about yours. In places where there are lots of big old houses with formal entry ways these can sell very well!!

Hi! I would love to help, but need more info. You said it 7 feet tall?

Can you take some better photos? These are very dark and I can't tell if I am looking at a hall table, a vanity, or a washbasin stand.

Looking forward to helping once I can see it better (front and back would be awesome).

Thanks for sharing!!!

Thanks again. I'll try to take better pictures. I am not the photographer I'd like to be. I'll give it a go anyway.

Hi Sam, I wish I had a bigger house, this piece is lovely!!

Thanks for the better photos, especially the one of the back. If that back is particle board I will peg the mirror from the 50s OR repaired in the 50s as the older mirrors (40s and older) usually had real wood backs. Originally I had it pegged for the 1930s...but the back has me changing that (unless the back is not original).

That said, I think you have a valuable piece. You said you are in CA so I would hope you could shop it around to a number of stores and get a decent price for it.

The furniture maker is going to be a tough one, especially if that is not the original back.

I am leaning to an Italian maker because of the lines of the carvings and the marble, although there were lots of US makers who used marble tops.

That would have been a bear to come over on a ship, but if someone wanted it, they would have because that is what people did.

Please post back what your local expert gives you!! This is a super cool piece that would look amazing in a big house!!

Hello and Thanks Again Pghgirl40. I suspect at somepoint the piece had a real wood back and for whatever reason was removed and discarded. Either to replace the mirror or the original back when it was real wood deterioated due to so many conditions possibly storage, etc mounting.. It is a cool piece and otherwise in very good condition. Thank you so much for your time and input... Sam

I will keep you posted as soon as I have someone chomping on the bit Thanks Again... Sincerely Sam

Hi Sam, it was lovely waking up to this news!! Now it all makes sense that they make Heritage pieces. That explains the back not being what I would expect for a true antique! I bookmarked this company history after the read. Very interesting! I adore old furniture and knowing the history is valuable to me, so THANK YOU!!!

How did you finally figure it out? Pulaski pieces still have value in the market so I hope you will fetch a tidy sum for it.

It was so much fun researching your piece and putting all of my knowledge to work. I do love a good mystery and now this one can be in the books with a great solve!!

Looking forward to hearing back the final sale. Blessings from the east coast!

Pghgirl40 That's cool that we both learned some great stuff about late 20th century furniture Americana. I love old furniture too. I'm in possession right now of some cool stuff. You might find some of it fascinating, though my guess is you are already familiar with it Here are some photos of my 3 Chromcraft Corporation dinette chairs. So wish I had the room to use them in my home. So comfy. Of course no collection would be complete without some mid 20 th century Bamboo Rattan from CALIF ASIA Furniture. I have the 3 part sofa The double table and 1 master chair. Enjoy

OOOOOHHHHHH!!! Love the Chromcraft!! You do not see a lot of that in the wild around here...I think people hold on to it like it was gold...esp the early pieces. They still sell really well in most big cities! Are your chairs 1950s or 80s?

Have you seen this link with their color palates:
blog.retroplanet.com/.../

I have never seen a "whimsical caprice" ever...that would be fun to see!!

I am not familiar with the Rattan pieces, although they are lovely. I guess not too many made it out east unless they went to FLA. Our porch weather in PA is not that long :(

Do you have a shop? I have found furniture much too hard for me to flip and I lean to the smalls.

Thanks for sharing your cool finds!!!

Hey Pghgirl40 you can always reach me direct at my email So much easier for me. waaawaawaaa@yahoo.com I believe they are 90's. They are so great ... They even put the name of who assembled them on the bottom of the chair tags. I have not seen their color palates... I know mine are Cocoa Natchez. I don't have a shop. Fortunately I have an open mind for anything that will inspire me musically. Which seems to be almost everything but the news. Which I never ever watch anyway. I also pretty much rebuilt my home and created space for things I might find. I am actually a working musician. I like things that are close to my age though I was born in a cool design era. Enter SAM MANN MUSIC in what ever search engine you use and I will pop up. Here is a link to a current performance. I'm the guy in black and red. youtu.be/ldm-hh_SIq0?t=6

I agree about needing better pictures.
Need full front (maybe not so much extra stuff showing in the mirror?) and also full front of the console (not whole mirror). Picture from side also.
Is this a drawer? Close up of drawer pull.
Post pictures of back and good pictures of the paper tag - readable or not.
Also provide any information you have about where it has been, how old to your knowledge?, and your location (if possible).
