This is an excellent versatile piece of furniture from the well known and respected British manufacturer Stag.
These pieces are quite a lucky find to come across, especially with the original stool and mirrors and have proved to be very popular in today’s modern homes.
As with all furniture produced by Stag, this is a well made piece and is from one of their most stylish ranges, Cantata.
Vanity (dressing) tables have been at the heart of a ladies’ (and mens’) bedroom or dressing room for centuries. Able to add a touch of flair to any room whilst also serving a practical purpose, a vintage or antique vanity table can be both a great statement and storage option for almost any room.
Six spacious drawers on wooden runners, the top left still bearing the stag label, the drawers gives a good amount of storage, all run smooth and are clean inside. The hinged triple mirror is fully adjustable with the centre section tilting back and forth, the side mirrors moving in and out. The stool has the original seat and is upholstered in a mink/oyster coloured velvet fabric (this has been steam cleaned to refresh). The whole set has been degreased, thoroughly cleaned and then re-oiled to further protect, enhance and nourish the woods and veneers.
Apart from very few general age related marks from usage there is a scratch/dint to the centre top area of the dressing table, as clearly shown in the photos. The original brass handles are all intact and tight. The mirrors show some light surface scratches but all hinges work and have been re-oiled. They will be removed for delivery and packaged separately, but need only two screws to reattach so only minimal assembly with be required.
A bit about Stag and the designer:-
Ron Carter, 1926 - 2013, studied at the RCA. He worked for Gordon Russell amongst others. He worked as design consultant for Nottingham based Stag furniture from around 1965 to 1979, taking over the role from John and Sylvia Reid. His first design for Stag was the Cantata range. It was introduced in 1966. Lesley Jackson says of Ron that he “represents a strain of quiet understatement that runs through post-war British furniture design from Robin Day in the 1950s to Jasper Morrison today”. Well suited to the slightly conservative British market, his designs never shout at you, they’re practical and well thought out.
The Cantata range was described in the 1966 catalogue as
”It is the perfect range for a modern house or flat because great care has been taken to achieve the maximum amount of storage space without increasing outside dimensions”.
H 64 cms
The mirror height is 57cm.
The kneehole space in the middle is H60cm and W51cm.
