This dresser is in good condition. Nominal old use marks to the top, leading edges and insides of the drawers but nothing significant considering the age of the timber. The dresser has been polished in our workshops. The solid chestnut lined drawers incorporate later period brass knobs. There is evidence of historical woodworm, which has been thoroughly treated. Please note, it is extremely common to see woodworm in early French walnut and cherry furniture of this age. As the dresser boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic warm mellow chestnut colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. The dresser is well constructed, solid in joint with no loose movements and is ready to be used.
