Excellent oak dresser with the lower section reverse breakfront with a arch top door flanked by six drawers all on a plinth base.
This dresser has a wonderful glow of un-refinished oak that has been rubbed and waxed for more than two centuries.
The arched paneled door is also unusual - setting off the inset center.
Note the sides are paneled (early form).
The reverse waterfall top (gets shallower towards the bottom) retains a bold dental cornice and it also retains the platter bars (a platter that is larger than will fit on the shelf - would lean forward on the bars).
