circa: 1820 width: 49 height: 45 length: 21 This antique mahogany dresser was bench-made in England around 1820, during the Georgian period, and recently hand-restored by a team of master craftsmen before being imported to our antique furniture store here in Atlanta, GA. The mahogany and satinwood banding, having developed a lovely, two-century patina that enriches the distinct grain and complexion of the wood, looks especially beautiful because the restorers have given it a new French polish. The new solid brass hardware also contrasts quite well with the dresser and is in keeping with hardware that would have been used during the Georgian period. Indeed, the overall design of this dresser is definitively Georgian, as it is constructed in a simple yet elegant straight front design that would complement any home furniture collection.As useful as it is beautiful, this Georgian mahogany dresser was made with a traditional two-over-three drawer design, with each of the strong drawers featuring hand-cut dovetailed joints, which was a common feature in antique furniture that signified fine craftsmanship. The shaped apron and bracket feet, which are original to the dresser, also look wonderful and provide sturdy support. Because of an excellent hand-performed restoration, this Georgian mahogany dresser remains in the excellent shape it will need to be in to function beautifully for another two centuries, so take advantage of this opportunity to make it a part of your home today!
