1950s G-Plan Brandon Dressing Table (Model B837)
The classic Brandon range was the first to be produced by E Gomme under the G-Plan brand name and was launched in 1953. All Brandon pieces were made in light oak veneer with the upper drawer(s) set back slightly into the frame, and all used simple geometrically styled handles.
Featuring in the first ever G-Plan catalogue, this dressing table is an iconic piece from the Brandon range, sought after both for its art deco-inspired shape and for its "secret storage" quadrant drawers (see photos). One of the drawers is also subdivided and velvetine lined (to "protect nylons and lingerie" according to the original Brandon catalogue!)
The piece is in good vintage condition with all its veneer intact and all joints tight. There is a slight cup mark on the left hand top surface (see photo), a small dent on the top shelf and the wood at the base of the mirror has a barely noticeable split. Otherwise, all is very clean and tidy!
