Fabulous Mid-Century Modern dresser or credenza designed by Kipp Stewart and Stewart MacDougall for Drexel’s Declaration Collection, circa 1960s. Featuring a solid, beautifully grained walnut wood case and frame housing four center drawers, each drawer is adorned with a single white porcelain ball knob on a brass fitting, creating a striking contrast to the walnut wood. The top drawer includes a felt lined, divided interior for tidy storage of personal effects. Maker Stamp (by Drexel) on the inside of the top drawer. The center drawers are flanked by stunning, double paneled doors. The cabinet doors open by way of a spring latch for easy opening and closing. Both cabinets have integrated lights. The left cabinet contains one adjustable shelf, and the right features one adjustable shelf and interchangeable split shelf to create cubbies. A recessed base of round tapered legs and apron provide stable support while conveying an airy “floating” effect. Additional Maker Stamp (Declaration by Drexel} on the back. Clean lines and timeless style, this showstopper will be an enhancing addition to any interior and also blend beautifully with many décor styles. Ideal piece for a bedroom, living room, entry, dining room or office. Full matching set available (sold separately).
Condition Report: Construction is strong and sturdy. Drawers and doors open effortlessly and smoothly; hardware intact, original finish, minor scuffs to lower side edge.
