This is a beautiful antique chiffonier dresser which dates to the 19th century.

The dresser is made from mahogany and mixed woods and is well made, solid and fairly heavy but has the benefit of splitting into two parts, making it very easy to transport and put in place in your home.

The base of the dresser has two carved doors which open to reveal a fixed shelf and pull out decanter drawer to the right. Above the doors are two wide drawers finished with ornate drop handles.

The dresser top is rather grand with carvings, an ornate pediment top and turned pillars set around an arrangement of bevelled mirrors.

I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of water based black paint before distressing the finish for a gently aged look. The paintwork is solid colour and has been waxed for protection, the finish is fairly matt and smooth.

The top of the dresser base has been left in the original highly French Polished finish.

CONDITION

The dresser is generally in good structural condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use. There are some small signs of aging to the mirrors, the top of the dresser base has a shadow or mark to the front right hand side and various other marks.

The drawers and cupboard interiors have marks of age and use and the handles are aged looking.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
