Vintage G Plan Fresco Dressing Table / Desk by VB Wilkins
This is a fine example of G Plan at its very best in its prime, championing the British midcentury design scene. Designed by Victor Wilkins who was behind their ever-popular Fresco range, this 1960’s teak dressing table is in superb, original condition and is completely in tact (often the mirror is broken or discarded along the way). It’s a substantial piece offering much storage with four spacious drawers and a hidden central vanity drawer too, along with an expansive top surface. The large mirror which can be angled to suit can, of course, be readily removed, giving you the option to use this as a slimline desk which would perhaps suit home working on a laptop. An iconic piece of British vintage furniture that is becoming harder to find and is much sought-after.
This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall excellent, used condition. It has been thoroughly cleaned and polished. It’s an expertly crafted piece of a very high quality construction, featuring dovetail joints and the immediately recognisable Fresco elongated drawer handles. All four main drawers are in good, tidy order internally, one is a little more marked than the others (see our photos) and they slide with ease. There is an additional hidden vanity drawer in the centre that is black velvet-lined and also in very good order. There are some very minor scuffs to the exterior wood in line with the piece’s age but nothing specific to flag – it’s in super condition. The mirror is also in excellent order and can be angled on its two arms. The mirror can be easily removed too. The original G Plan sticker can be found inside the top drawer.
