Description

Rway Furniture….for gracious living… is how a 1947 magazine ad reads for this gorgeous vanity, mirror, and chair from this line. And, were they right or what!? This piece is full of grace and charm. The vanity is comprised of two drawered sections with four delicately curving legs and two drawers for each section which are connect by a center inward bowing drawer creating knee room for sitting. All five of the drawers are adorned by delicately draped pulls and placed inside a chest. The ends of the top have a slight beveled edge giving a softer look. Almost rounded. The top, sides, and drawer fronts are definitely light mahogany; however, the legs and the frame of the chest itself may be another species of wood that has escaped our power of detection. The mirror, which hangs on the wall above the vanity, has a curving wishbone shape and lovely curve to the mirror glass top. Its bottom portion is carved with a wonderful floral design. Plus, there is a curvaceous little vanity chair with its original dusty pink satin upholstery.  All the details combine to make this vanity set exceptionally beautiful pieces of Art Deco styled furniture.

Rway Furniture (originally founded in 1881 as Mattoon Manufacturing Co. and changed to Northern Furniture Co. in 1904 upon the death of its founder George B. Mattoon), as the company was named in 1949, over the years operated a chain of 12 showrooms across the country. Their operation ceased in 1993.

According to a 1947 and a 1951 magazine ad, this style bedroom suite was produced then. We have been unable to find whether it was produced prior to 1947 or after 1951. Great history. Great quality. Great style. You need to make it yours.
