lacquering, h 66.0cm × w 47.0cm × d 29.0cm More details

The principal piece of this toilet set is a small chest of drawers with an attached mirror. This example was made in China, though its mirror follows an English design. It was commissioned by the Canton-based Dutch merchant Andreas Everardus van Braam Houckgeest as a gift for his daughter in the Netherlands; her initials are found on the accompanying toilet boxes.
