Description

Description: We offer a charming miniature Empire dresser that stands at 9 ⅜” high, 9 ½” wide and 5 ½” deep. It has three drawers, with original wooded pulls and a shaped back-splash. The front two legs are Sheraton-style and the rear are simply turned. Crafted from rich umber toned mahogany veneer and pine, this well preserved work was likely made as a salesman’s sample to show potential customers (and take up less floor space in the showroom.) For modern use it would do well as a jewelry box or a dresser for doll clothing. Item #DA00218. Condition: Untouched, good condition, with minor age appropriate wear. The backsplash is slightly loose and reinforced with old paper tape..
