Custom Black Cherry Dresser

About This Post

"The American Empire furniture era pulled a lot of style ques from French and Grecian designs while maintaining cleaning lines with less gilding. This allowed the focus to fall primarily on the variety of side pillars and predominantly walnut and mahogany veneer. The style found popularity beginning in the 1820s and carried throughout the 1870s with a small revival in the 1890s. Based on construction methods of this chest, I estimate it to be circa 1850 - 1880. Featuring the iconic bookmatched veneer, brass escutcheon plates, and the classic curved side pillars, this chest brings the Empire design to life 150 years later. The craftsmanship, like many others of the period, is impeccable and offers all that's need for a combination of function and beauty. The custom Black Cherry stain mix (approximately 50/50 General Finishes Black Cherry and Provincial Water Based Stain) highlights the grain detail in a flat sheen for an elegant aged style." - Saved By Design
