Fabulous Mid-Century Modern eleven drawer 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 drawers on the right and left, and three center drawers behind stunning, paneled doors. The top left drawer includes a divided interior and movable tray for tidy storage of personal effects. Maker Stamp (by Drexel) on inside of top right drawer. Each drawer is adorned with a single white porcelain ball knob on a brass fitting creating a striking contrast to the walnut wood. The center doors open by way of a spring latch to reveal three drawers beautifully sculpted for easy opening and closing. 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.
