Vintage walnut tall dresser circa early 1960s. This absolute jewel remains in nearly pristine condition from the Broyhill Premier ‘Brasilia’ collection. The Brasilia line is a collection that was first presented at the world’s fair in Seattle in 1962, as a tribute to the design of Brazilian famed architect Oscar Niemeyer. One of the most celebrated and highly collectible lines on the American atomic era of design. The cabinet’s signature arches and pulls are molded after buildings design by Niemeyer for Brazil’s capital city.
This unit features two large sculpted cabinet doors open up to reveal three drawers and three cubbies. Below are two large deep spacious drawers for additional storage, with original brass colored signature Brasília hardware in fantastic shape. Dresser is a richly colored walnut and resting on a handsome sturdy hardwood plinth base overlaid with rich walnut veneer. The dresser is in good vintage condition with appropriate wear from age and use. One of the most beloved and collected lines of American furniture is the atomic age. It is easy to see why so many fall in love with Brasília. An exceedingly fine chest, this piece has been very well taken care of over the years.
