Exceptional late 19th.c. Reformed Gothic or Arts & Crafts style walnut dresser c.1870. Tall open display rack with three shelves on crisply turned and carved columns.

Ebonized, raised and fielded door panels carved with geometric designs to the upper doors. Decorative brass strap hinges and handles.

A remarkable piece of exhibition quality furniture.

Excellent condition, original through, simply cleaned and waxed in our workshops.
