This dressing table is the finest Salem dressing table we have ever seen, and easily matches up to the best of the BostonSeymour school. Note the mirror brackets--which are twice as large as those found on the Boston example--and the magnificent acanthus carving and rosettes carved out of the same solid block as the bracket itself, not merely carved afterward and applied. If this weren't enough, the carved broken arch pediment above the mirror and central panel with reeded frame complete the tour de force.
