Period inventories refer to this type of table as a “chamber,” “dressing,” or “toilet” table, indicating its use in a bedroom for grooming. The drawers with drop pulls held brushes, combs, pomade pots, and scent bottles. Frequently made as companion pieces to high chests, dressing tables were often topped by a matching mirrored dressing stand or looking glass.
