Country of Origin: USA Style: Renaissance Revival Maker: Thomas Brooks Condition: Restored Year: 1870 Attributed to Thomas Brooks, Brooklyn, comprising a bedstead and princess dresser, bed with swagged arched crest flanked by urn uprights, paneled headboard, conforming rails and foot board; dresser with conforming crest and framed mirror above marble top drop center with drawer, flanked by marble top banks of drawers on each side, raised on casters. Note: The Renaissance Revival furniture of Brooklyn, New York, cabinetmaker Thomas Brooks is distinguished by its profusion of classical architectural details including segmented and triangular pediments, columns, pilasters, brackets, acroteria, and urns, often combined with richly figured walnut veneers that accentuate the high relief of the decoration. The bedstead and dresser in the current lot feature details similar to those on a bed and matching dressing case bearing the stenciled label of Thomas Brooks; arched panels with volutes flanking the upper part of the headboard of the bedstead, the mirror of the dresser case and the carved decoration of Neo-Grec stylized classical leaves emerging from the volutes.
