HISTORY
The history of the dressing table goes as far back as the decorative boxes made by Egyptians to hold cosmetics. In Europe, the dressing table which was an evolution of the toilette was first developed in the beginning of the 17th century. By the 18th century, it became a luxury item for privileged or titled women, a mark of social standing as well as an object for fine design and craftsmanship.
