Oak vanities have been important aspects of any bathroom for a long time now. Let’s take a trip back in time about a hundred years. This is a time before cheap plastic was invented. Wood still reigned supreme, and since the assembly line had yet to be invented, wood craftsmanship was a very valuable trade. A sense of care and pride went into what we now call antique vanities. While copies of certain patterns were certainly made, because they were not mass-produced each one seemed to have a sense of uniqueness. The owners of these oak vanities had a pride of ownership, a feeling that the vanity was theirs and theirs alone.
