Made around 1880-1890 this is one fine quarter sawn ( tiger oak ) oak carved three piece bedroom set. High back bed, tall dresser and customary but often missing washstand. The carving is well proportioned, deep, bold, and strong.
The finish is original and the pictures will show the surfaces untouched with the finish as it should be for the age. This is a high quality set, not the more common light weight thin oak sets we see so often.
There has been no work done on this set. However, we plan on doing minor regluing to the dresser on the lower back and sides and adjusting the drawers so they glide smoothly. We will also do some restoration to the top of the washstand and dresser. Some visual reintegration. The tops show expected wear from over a century of use. We have the skills to make the top look clean and well cared for but not freshly redone.
We acquired it from a Virginia estate where it resided for the last 75-100 years according to the previous owners. We did take some of the bed clothes out of the drawers!!!
Priced as shown which includes--->includes<--- gluing the dresser base and any other regluing that is necessary and a bit of cosmetic restoration to the tops of the dresser and washstand, cleaning and waxing. Sold as a set only. Buying as is will have a discount applied.
Bed is a standard double size.
We are able to do a complete restoration on this set if desired but it is not recommended. the condition and patina is good as the pictures show.
