Georgian Oak Dresser
A good example of a Georgian oak dresser dating from the late 18th century. The base has three drawers with brass plate handles and matching escutcheons. The base stands on tapering front legs with pad feet and square chemfered back legs. The open rack has three shelves flanked by square molded columns, dentil molding below the cornice and a pretty carved frieze.
It is in excellent condition throughout and is a good sturdy piece of furniture. It has been well maintained and as such has had some repairs over the years. The back legs have been replaced but it has been done well and in keeping and it hasn't affected the dresser structurally or aesthetically. There is also one old replacement board on the back of the plate rack. It is not without some signs of age and use but this has all helped to develop a beautiful rich patina over the years. It is a well balanced piece with a wonderful colour and it displays beautifully. It has been given a thorough clean and gentle polish and is ready for use.
