Catalogue No. 1908
This is a late 18th century (c.1790) oak dresser base. The dresser has mahogany fluted quarter columns to both sides, stands on shaped bracket feet and is fitted with two shaped panel doors between which is a smaller fixed panel. The drawers are constructed with oak linings and are fitted with pierced brass handles. The top is constructed from two oak boards. The cupboard doors open to reveal a single half depth shelf. This dresser base is full of charm and character and is a nice rich warm colour. There is no damage other than a small indentation mark towards the back of the top, commensurate with age and usage. Although this dresser is predominantly of the Georgian period (late 18th century) it is our opinion that it has undergone an element of quality remodeling during it's lifetime, particularly with respect to the doors. This does not detract from the usefulness and appearance of the dresser, which would be well suited to a small room, cottage or holiday home.
