This is a lovely antique Welsh Anglesey (North Wales), late George III dresser base, displaying a lovely mellow colour, constructed of oak, mahogany and fruitwood, circa 1820, in excellent overall condition. The dresser is predominantly constructed from oak, but also boasts mahogany and fruitwood constituents. The dresser comprises a solid mahogany top, encased with oak moulding. Below, the dresser is designed with a breakfront construction, with a central column of working fruitwood fronted drawers flanked by a cupboard and a drawer each side. To each side of the centre of the dresser are decorative bobbin turned mahogany columns. The base consists of six working mahogany fronted drawers with later Victorian Gothic inspired brass drop circular handles. The cupboard doors are decorated with inset mahogany rectangular panels. It is nice to see that this dresser features all its working drawers. Quite often, similar dressers have feature faux / decorative drawers down the centre but this dresser boasts all working drawers, which is a nice feature. All drawers are pine lined, hand dovetailed, smooth running and close flush to the frame. The top central drawer features a working lock and key (all others are faux keyholes). The two cupboard doors are securely closed by twisting two swivel wooden latches, to prevent them from opening. The dresser stands on the original shaped bracket feet to the front and block feet to the rear.
This Welsh dresser boasts its original polish and patination, displaying a mellow golden-brown oak colour, which has been created from 200 years of care. This dresser is an excellent investment and would look superb in a variety of rooms from the kitchen, hall way or the living room, offering plenty of useful storage space. This dresser base would certainly grace any home
We believe this dresser originates from the village of Talwrn, on the island of Anglesey, Wales, United Kingdom. Talwrn is renowned for its community of woodworkers who made distinctive furniture from the early 19th Century to the early 20th Century. The pieces are typically decorated with inlaid spots, triangles and diamonds and finished with quarter-sawn oak, with the style and quarter-sawn oak present in this dresser. They are highly sought after, decorative and functional items that would complement any country kitchen or dining room.
