About the object

A Delightful Late 18th Century Oak Dresser With Mahogany
Crossbanded Decoration Retaining Original Top Rack With 
Elegant Pierced Fretwork Decoration Above Extremely Unusual 
Concave Central Shelves Flanked By Two Cupboard Doors And
Three Frieze Drawers Retaining Original Brass Swan Neck Handles
Above Shaped Frieze Raised On Elegant Square Legs

(Wow, this dresser is simply stunning. Incredibly functional but at 
the same time fabulous quality, a mellow warm colour and retaining
some extremely unusual features. These include the rather unusual 
pierced fretwork decoration, a design we have never come across 
before, so perhaps quite a specific commission and the two concave 
bowed shelves which stretch between the cupboard doors. It's almost
impossible to put into words how elegant this dresser is for such a
relatively large piece of furniture, but suffice to say it would be the 
absolute making and focal point of many a potential destination room, no
doubt to be much loved and admired for many a year still to come!)
