The Antique Lowboy was an 18th century piece of period furniture originally used as a dressing table but now used as a good country side table. The antique Lowboy originally got its name as it is basically a low, small table. They were usually in English oak but occasionally you can see them in fruit-wood or walnut with one or two drawers on the front and solid brass decorative handles. The earliest examples from the Queen Anne period would have been standing on elegant cabriole legs and made from walnut or with spectacular figured oyster veneers. The Georgian period produced more simple country designs with turned legs and usually come with lots of lovely charm and character. Many of these designs were reproduced in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras in Mahogany timbers, with Chippendale influences like blind fretwork carvings and more intricate decorative handles. Have a look below at our lovely examples of antique lowboys available for sale.
