An elegant oak dresser made in the Georgian style around the turn of the 20th century. Constructed from solid oak (no ply) it has a panelled back that also houses two glazed cupboards (with key). It has two deep, spacious oak lined drawers with dovetail joints, both are very clean inside. The shelves have beading strips to facilitate displaying plates etc, although it must be noted that there is a small 2cm piece missing from the end of the lower left hand strip (see detailed photo). The base has slender, sweeping 18th century style legs to the front, either side of a shaped apron while the rear legs are straight. There is also shaping to the frieze, below the top moulding. The copperised finish to the to the handles on both the drawers and the cupboards echo the style prevalent at the time of manufacture. The top is removable from the base unit for ease of transportation. FREE DELIVERY to most areas (see below) Some colours may be viewed slightly different according to the set-up of your display.

Mid Wales Antiques has clarified that the 5ft Oak Welsh Dresser (LA349104) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c. 1901-1910
There are some age-related marks of the top surface which have been there a long time, but have been well-polished over the years and form part of its present patina. There are no splits, breaks or repairs and everything is completely original; no attempt has been made to disguise any flaws. The dresser remains just as it was when purchased from the house deep in Mid Wales. Every effort has been made to portray the item accurately through the text and photos, if there’s anything you are unsure of (size, colour, condition etc.) I will be happy to clarify things.
