Inside Lauren Bacall’s Amazing $26 Million Central Park Apartment

Unique George III Style Dresser Sold For $6,875

Though Bacall favored French design, she also included pieces from other countries and periods. Her antique George III oak Welsh dresser, which displayed her collection of fine china, was from the late 18th century.

Though the style is straight from the United Kingdom, George III pieces are actually an English interpretation of Rococo (in other words, they’re based on that classic, French style Bacall loves). Bacall’s dresser, which sold for $6,875, was made from oak, a unique choice for pieces from that time. George III style furniture typically uses Mahogany. Sometimes painted satinwood and giltwood would be used, but rarely oak.
