(Practical, functional, elegant, full of character, retaining
original features, are just a small selection of the reasons
to purchase this beautiful dresser base. It retains an excellent
colour and patina and has clearly been well used, but also
well loved and looked after throughout the 200 years plus of
its existence. It is indeed extremely unusual for a dresser base
of this period to retain all of its original brassware as this one
does. It is also a relatively unusual feature to have such well
executed inlaid decoration on a country made piece of
furniture and the inlay this dresser is certainly a lovely
feature. All the above is of course accentuated by the delightful
shaped frieze and elegant cabriole legs. Perfect for a variety
of places around home this dresser base would look beautiful
along a wall in a narrow hallway, on the back of a large settee,
in a kitchen/dining room, or even in a living room due to its
relatively restrained form for a country made piece of furniture.
Im sure there are many other settings it would also work beautifully in.)
