This is a fine antique English George II oak four drawer low dresser base, originating from the Lancashire / Cheshire area, with substantial form boasting a stunning colour, circa 1750, in excellent overall condition. The dresser incorporates a twin-plank oak moulded edge top, above four working drawers. The drawers feature moulded fronts, with fine quality old replacement brass swan neck fretwork handles on shaped escutcheons. All four drawers feature the original working steel lever locks (and a key). The oak & pine lined drawers are constructed with butt-joints; they close flush to the frame. Below the drawers is a shaped frieze, incorporating a simple, central disc of ebony inlay. The sides of the dresser comprise inset moulded panels. The dresser stands on ring turned legs to the front and block legs to the rear. The dresser has been constructed in the traditional method using the joined peg construction method.
The dresser features a superb rich mid brown oak colour. It has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This Georgian dresser base would look superb in any hallway, kitchen or dining room. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional.
The dresser is in excellent overall condition, considering its age. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, frame and top, including inside of drawers, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The drawers are decorated with fine quality old replacement brass swan neck fretwork handles on shaped escutcheons. All four drawers feature the original working steel lever locks (and a key). The drawer bottoms have been restored and glued to ensure the drawer frames are structurally sound and functionable. The dresser retains its original legs all of which are in good overall condition, but with expected wear to the feet tips. The dresser boasts a stunning original polish and patination, having been cleaned and professionally wax polished in our workshop. The dresser is well constructed, solid in joint with no loose movements and is ready to be used.
