    Hi,

    Can I get some help with this piece. It’s marble lined and appears to have some age to it. I see that it is veneer and I think the front work is called marquetry. What would this have been used for? Any idea on wood, age, origin etc? I had to load more photos underneath here because it would only allow 10. I wanted to make sure you had enough to help out with. I think it had legs or something. It’s very heavy. I don’t think it would have been long legs

    any help is very much appreciated. Thank you!

    Looks to me like a very fancy wash stand, with a lined compartment for a chamber pot.

    That would be My guess as well. The marble lining would provide water proofing for the marquetry. Very wealth family.

    A wine cooler is more likely. It would be tricky to get a po out of that.

    As opposed to Gazumping? Now there's some British terms I have never heard before , and that's saying something as both mu Grandparents were English and I thought I had heard just about all of them...

    Gazunder-*goes under* a bed ... ie a Po ( potty for children, chamber pot for adults )
