DRESSING TABLE MAGIC

The dressing table originates from the beginning of the 17th Century, and by the 18th century had become a mark of social standing, popularised by Madame de Pompadour and Marie Antoinette, both known for their fashion and influence. Silver brushes, boxes, scent bottles and mirrors are as beautiful and practical on today’s dressing tables as they were back then
