Unrestored 18th.c. Conwy Valley Welsh Dresser c.1760.

Purchased locally and belonging originally to a farm just a few miles from our warehouse, we present as found this unrestored Conwy valley Welsh dresser c.1760.
A superb example of the form, useful small size, with wonderful early timbers and original colour. Note the deep ‘belly’ shaped sides and arched detail to the canopy on the rack. Three shelves, the top shelf pierced with slots for displaying spoons, original cornice (missing the right hand return) and oak backboards. Two door cupboard base with three drawers featuring unusual narrower middle knife drawer and fixed centre panel. Simple thumb moulded detail to the edges of the top and the drawer fronts. Arched, raised and fielded panels across the front. Square raised and fielded panels on the sides. Original oak panelled back and oak floor boards.
Presented unrestored, with some obvious damage and missing the drawer and door handles (though we believe the escutcheons on the two larger drawers are original). One later replacement drawer bottom, otherwise original through.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss restoration options.
