This small wooden dresser measures just under 14" tall to the top of the swivel mirror frame. The body is 9" wide, 5" deep and 7" tall.
The sides, top and drawer dividers are made of solid oak with nailed and slotted and glued construction. The drawer fronts and mirror frame are a softer wood and the drawers are impressed with an interesting geometric design. The turned posts that hold the mirror fit into drilled holes in the top panel. This assembly is removable.
The dresser was found with small wooden knobs and several were missing. We replaced all with white porcelain knobs and they are a nice size match and really dress up the cabinet. We also covered the mirror back and lined the drawers with pieces of craft paper.
Very sturdy and sound and in nice condition with no damage other than some very light scratching here and there and some discoloration on the mirror frame. The mirror shown minor age-related spotting and silver loss but no cracks or chips. The line in the photo is a reflection.
Nice for displaying with dolls or for storing desk, sewing or other small items. The 3 drawers are the same size and the interior dimensions are about 7" by 3 3/4" by 1 1/4" deep.
We have had many examples of this miniature oak furniture over the years and none have had any sort of manufacturer's marks. The are American-made according to our reference book* which shows similar pieces from the Butler Brothers catalog of 1895. This company was not the manufacturer but a wholesaler that provided goods to retailers east of the Mississippi River.
Ask about our other examples of this type of larger furniture. We currently have several pieces that are not listed in our shop.
