This antique mahogany dresser was bench-made in England around 1820, during the Georgian period, and recently imported to our antique furniture store here in Atlanta, GA. The mahogany and ebony string inlay, having developed a lovely, two-century patina that enriches the distinct grain and complexion of the wood, looks especially beautiful because the finish has timeless depth and warmth to it.
The new solid brass hardware also contrasts quite well with the dresser and is in keeping with hardware that would have been used during the Georgian period. Indeed, the overall design of this dresser is definitively Georgian, as it is constructed in a simple yet elegant bow front design that would complement any home furniture collection. As useful as it is beautiful, this Georgian mahogany dresser was made with a traditional two-over-three drawer design, with each of the strong drawers featuring hand-cut dovetailed joints, which was a common feature in antique furniture that signified fine craftsmanship. The solid plinth base also looks wonderful and provide sturdy support.
Gorgeous rope twist columns adorn either side of the piece. Also, satinwood escutcheons provide a little contrast to the front. Unfortunately, no key remains to lock the drawers.
This chest remains in good structural condition. It has a large number of small cosmetic flaws that have accumulated over the years. These include stains, marks, scratches (colored in and polished over now), small veneer repairs, and small age separations. Despite the number of minor flaws, they have all been polished over and now provide the piece with some character.
Georgian Period antiques are very hard to come across now, so take advantage of this opportunity to make it a part of your home today!
