Antique Wooden Child's or Bachelor's Dresser w/5 Drawers. Charming, antique dresser salvaged from Central Connecticut. It's made of solid pine or Douglas Fir and has 5 drawers. Each drawer has a wide wooden pull. It was built sometime during during the middle of the previous century.
Considering its age, the piece is in great shape. The dresser has the typical nicks, scrapes, scratches, and spots of worn finish here and there that you would expect to find on a piece this old. There are a couple of checks or shallow cracks next to one of the drawers (see photo). The side panels of the dresser are made of plywood, which is a bunch of sheets of wood glued together. The top layer of the plywood warped a bit creating some bubbles (see photos).
The bubbles could be split down the middle and glued to become flat again, however, both the checks/cracks and the bubbles are only cosmetic or character marks, which are not serious flaws. Our carpenter thoroughly inspected the piece and didn't need to make any repairs. He did reinforce the bottoms of the drawers, which kept sliding out of place, but he didn't need to glue or reinforce any other part of the dresser. The chest is strong and sturdy and is ready for another lifetime of service! Top : 24 1/4 " W x 15" D.
