The dressing table (along with lot 5 and lot 6 in this sale) was purchased by the consignor's great grandparents from R.J. Horner in New York City in the early 1890s. The suite was purchased for the family's country house in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. (See attached photos of the suite in situ at the Lake Geneva home).
