This charming little wooden doll dresser is one of the cutest vintage toys I've seen. It is being modeled by a vintage Cissette, a 10-inch doll; so that you can get an idea of its size (the doll and rug are not being offered with this sale – only the dresser). It is very substantially constructed (it weights almost a pound) and needs no gluing or repair. It measures 5" tall, 6 ¾" wide from the base, and 3 ¾" deep. It has its original metal drawer pulls and turned bun feet. The secondary material used on the sides and bottom of the drawers is a thick cardboard jointed with heavy metal clips, which makes me think this may be from the WWII era, when construction materials were scarce. The drawers are very sturdy and slide in and out very easily. This is such a well-built piece that you could store doll items in the drawers and not worry about the piece falling apart. The dresser actually has stain and finish on it just like regularly manufactured furniture. As you can see from the photos, some of the stain/finish has come off, and it has some nicks on it, but to me that only adds charm to the piece, knowing that it was played with and loved.
If I didn't already have so many vintage toys, I'd keep this little darling for myself. It is so cute!
