Dressing table: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
The elaborate scroll and leaf decoration on this 18th-century dressing table derives from the style of English designer Thomas Chippendale. The maker of this object became known as "The Garvan Carver" when a group of works in the Francis Garvan collection at Yale University were determined to be made by the same unidentified person. Scholars continue to investigate the Garvan Carver, who is believed to have worked in Philadelphia.
