Mid 19th Century Empire Style French Model Dresser. This masculine model of a dresser features three drawers with beautiful brass accents. These types of dresser models are considered apprentice pieces and are used to showcase a piece before it is made in full size. They were samples given to salesmen to sell to furniture designers and sellers. They later became hot items for lovers of furniture due to the complexity of their design and structure. This specific one has been expertly carved from cherrywood and given a wax treatment. It features two doric-like columns positioned at the sides, adding extra detail. A wonderful addition to any home or collection.
