This beautiful, well-crafted, solid wood, 4-drawer antique dresser appears to have been created in the Sheraton style, popular in the U.S. from 1790 - 1820. The body of the dresser is rectangular. The top of the dresser is slightly overhung, and the body sits upon four elegantly turned legs. The top drawer is the smallest, while the lower three drawers get progressively larger in size, with the bottom drawer being the largest. Each drawer boasts handcarved dovetail joinery. The dresser has been painted in Republic Red, a cranberry red by Wise Owl Paint. It has been sealed with water-based satin polyurethane. Escutcheon plates and bail pulls adorn the drawers. They have been updated in an antique brass tone, which plays beautifully against the red backdrop. Each drawer has been lined with a cream and white botanical print, giving a modern flare to this antique piece. The hardware holes inside the drawers appear to have been carved or notched out by hand.

As an educated guess from research, this dresser may be made of a maple or cherry wood. It does not appear to have been veneered at any time during its lifetime. The joinery and style of this piece lends itself to antique status, and it is in excellent condition for its age. It would be an incredible piece in a bedroom, dining room, or even a living room (think extra storage with a piece of art hanging above it). Available for pickup in Windham, Maine, by the high school.
