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.
