Waterfall vanities and other waterfall bedroom furniture were popular from the 1920s to the 1940s, primarily. They were named for the rounded drop front, that resembles a waterfall and are considered art deco in style. These bring back so many memories for people, almost every person that saw the last one I had said their mother or grandmother had one. One tourist shared with me that her mother had a wedding portrait done sitting at her vanity. Wouldn’t this make a stunning prop for a photographer? The finish was in pretty rough condition, but I chose to work on restoring that, rather than paint it. I also recovered the seat. This was very well made, with dovetail drawers and all drawers and slides work properly. The handles are original, with straight screws and what I believe are bakelite disk accents. This pretty piece will be at the cabin IF it can be moved without getting wet, July 12th.
