Here is an example of a fine quality antique Welsh Georgian oak pot board dresser base, displaying a rich oxblood colour, circa 1800, originating from South Wales, which is in good condition. With narrow proportions (5ft wide), the dresser incorporates a moulded oak top, with a raised shelf incorporating an up-stand to the rear and carved gallery to the sides.

The drawers incorporate pine linings, constructed with hand dovetail joints. The central drawer retains its original steel lock, with a working key. The base is raised on four-baluster ring turned supports, united by a pot-board base below, where the planks run front to back. The dresser has been constructed in the traditional method using the joined peg construction method.

The dresser features a rich mid brown oak colour. It has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received (it cannot be recreated by re-polishing).

The dresser would look superb in any hallway, kitchen or dining room. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
