NOW SOLD

 

A small but perfectly proportioned late 18th century pine dresser. Provincially made in South West England, for a small cottage or farmhouse. The piece still retains some of its original red-stained paint surface, a common finish for country pieces to make the pine resemble a more expensive wood, such as mahogany.

 

It has tapered circular legs, front and back, and these form part of the integral base structure. They are simply decorated at the top by a series of incised lines, and peg-secured to the front and side panels.

 

The drawers have cockbead surrounds and still retain their original turned yew knobs. All drawers run smoothly. The separate upper plate rack is framed with reeded moulding, some of which is now missing or else repaired. Original beaded backboards. There are some old woodworm holes - as a precautionary measure, we have treated the whole piece for woodworm.
