About the object

A Charming 18th Century George III Period Oak Dresser 
Base Of Good Rich Colour And Patina Having Well Figured
Top Over Three Frieze Drawers Retaining Original Pierced
Plate Handles And Attractive Inlaid Decoration To Shaped
Frieze Raised On Elegant Cabriole Legs

(Practical, functional, elegant, full of character, retaining
original features, are just a small selection of the reasons 
to purchase this beautiful dresser base. It retains an excellent
colour and patina and has clearly been well used, but also
well loved and looked after throughout the 200 years plus of
its existence. It is indeed extremely unusual for a dresser base
of this period to retain all of its original brassware as this one 
does. It is also a relatively unusual feature to have such well 
executed inlaid decoration on a country made piece of 
furniture and the inlay this dresser is certainly a lovely 
feature. All the above is of course accentuated by the delightful
shaped frieze and elegant cabriole legs. Perfect for a variety 
of places around home this dresser base would look beautiful 
along a wall in a narrow hallway, on the back of a large settee, 
in a kitchen/dining room, or even in a living room due to its 
relatively restrained form for a country made piece of furniture. 
Im sure there are many other settings it would also work beautifully in.)
