Art Nouveau: Is this a dresser or washstand?
I picked up this great quarter sawn oak Nouveau piece today at the antique market for a whopping $65. It looks like it has a backsplash like a washstand, but most washstands I've seen have a cupboard door. I don't think it could be a sideboard, since again there are only drawers. But why would a dresser have a backsplash like this one? There are two marks on the back where either a mirror or a towel rack used to be (see photo). The mark on the left is easier to see than the mark on the right.
Can anyone date it (I was thinking 1890s) and is anyone able to tell if this is a dresser or a washstand? Thanks!
