Dressoir
Inspired by a painting by Jan van Eyck 1420-1425, this little dressoir has a closed storage space at the top. It was suitable for a private chamber rather than a hall and not intended just for display as the larger ones used in a hall. It combined a pleasing appearance with utility and was used for preparing and storing food and utensils.
