We found this lovely vintage Queen Anne dresser in England and feel it was made around the year 1960. Because it is rather tall it supplies more storage than other chest of drawers in this width and makes it ideal for a room where storage is needed.
The wood used is walnut which has a light, almost honey color to it. You will see how the grain is burled on the top and drawer fronts. A straight grained walnut was used to create a cross band around the top. Canted (or cut) corners along with the Queen Anne style feet give this vintage Queen Anne dresser some curves and keep it from being to rectangular. Finally, pierced brass handles add an elegant touch to the drawers.
The top of this dresser has a back splash which is very handy for keeping items from being knocked off behind the piece. It keeps you from having to dig around underneath it or move it everything you bump your chap stick and it starts rolling away! Each of the five graduated drawers opens and closes very smoothly on wooden runners. A sign of the quality and care that went into the construction of this piece can be seen in the dovetailed drawers. Dovetailing is the strongest way to join drawers and means they will last for many, many years.
Vintage Queen Anne Dresser Condition
Structurally, this piece is very sound. All of the drawers function perfectly and the feet are sturdy. It does have a small variety of light wear marks in the form of small scratches and dings. These can be seen on the top, the canted corners, and around the drawers and feet. You will see a sampling in the pictures, mostly in the close ups as the marks don’t really show up until you get close to the piece. Overall this vintage Queen Anne dresser is a function and beautiful piece that would make a wonderful addition to your home!
