Here is an
example of a very good quality antique oak dresser base and rack displaying a
colour and small proportions,
circa 1730. Built in the reign of George
II, it is of a North Wales origin. The

house. The rack features two shelves
with a shaped frieze and protruding canopy with iron hooks on each shelf. The rack features its original pine backboards. The base features fielded panel sides and
front with oak cross banding to the front cupboards. The doors have a working lock and key and
feature brass “H” hinge, brass escutcheon and brass knobs. Inside the base, there are two removable pine
shelves and above this, there are two secret hidden sovereign compartments (boxes)
to hide valuables. The dresser boasts

kitchen. This item would certainly grace any home and a great investment,
as they are an extremely functional. So

The item is
in very good condition and is commensurate with its age. The dresser has most likely been reduced during
the Victorian period. The dresser boasts an excellent colour / patination. Nominal old use marks (cup marks) to the top
of the base but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The brass escutcheons and knobs have most
likely been replaced during the Victorian period. The backboards to the base
are old replacements of Victorian origin. Free of active woodworm, solid in joint and
ready to use.
