This handsome solid cherry chest of drawers or dresser is from the Empire period. Notice the highly figured graining on the drawer fronts. There is one large, deep drawer over 3 graduated drawers. All have their original wooden pulls and locks and are hand dovetailed. The top drawer has a small piece, roughly 2 ½” of cockbeading missing along the lower right bottom. This is not obvious and does not affect its integrity or aesthetics. All the drawers open and close smoothly. Check out the carved rondels and inlaid panels along the sides of the top drawer. In addition, there are boldly turned and carved columns on either side of the lower drawers. The dresser has recessed paneled ends and rests on boldly turned feet. The finish appears original and is in great condition considering its age. There are some ring stains on the top of the dresser which is to be expected and only adds to its charm and authenticity.
