This unique Victorian period antique dresser has many unusual features which make it a really interesting find. While these features are unusual they do come together nicely on this chest of drawers.
“D” Front Shape
While many chests that were made during the Victorian period (English circa 1860) are bow fronted, this chest is more of what we refer to as a “D” shaped front. This shape allows the antique dresser to have some very nice, smooth columns down the sides while providing more elegance than a straight front. The wood used in construction is a particularly gorgeous flame mahogany that really pops on the drawer fronts and top. You will want to put this chest where it can be seen because it will wow all of your visitors. The mahogany is further enhanced with a very thick mahogany cross band on the top and some rosewood inlay on the edge of the top.
Another unique feature of this chest of drawers is the feet. The feet are a curved, shaped foot that is inlaid with rosewood in the middle. I doubt you will find another dresser out there with these same feet!
All of the signs of high quality construction are present in this piece. The drawers have hand cut dovetails both in the front and back of the drawers. The finish is a gorgeous hand rubbed French polish that will last for many years. You will see four well done veneer repairs on the front of the chest in between the drawers (they appear as dark areas in between the drawers). These are old repairs that were well done. The top does have some tiny wear marks that you would expect from an antique dresser, mostly small dings here and there. Both the right and left sides have numerous age separations in the wood. These are cosmetic only and are normal in solid wood pieces. The second drawer down (first long drawer) has two slight veneer bubbles on the right side. These are slightly visible in the picture of the dovetails.
Overall this is a stunning Victorian period antique dresser that will add elegance and charm to any room.
