#11-12 - Original and Complete Colonial Dresser

Original and Complete Colonial Dresser

Original and Complete Colonial Dresser

An original and complete colonial dresser that still has its cresting (often later removed). Typically Rimu or Kauri with a Pururi veneer that in this case has been stained to imitate walnut or mahogany. The level and detail of the carving indicate expensive embellishments so this is a superior piece. Bellied front, original mirror silvering, electro-plate "antiqued" nouveau handles and bun feet which is unusual and adds interest. With its generous size and sophisticated decoration such as the complex turnings, this is a really fine quality dresser and it would be hard to find a better one.

Age: 1905

Status: Sold
