Being presented for sale is this absolutely stunning early Victorian Walnut
Serpentine Front Marble Top Dresser with fabulous Sea Serpent Carved Arm
Supports circa 1860's. This fabulous early dresser is from Chicora Wood
Plantation ; an historical Rice plantation in South Carolina that was built in
1817. We believe this dresser to have its original rich finish, original marble
and mirror and the original early wood ring drawer pulls that are attached with
wooden screws and blocks, and the original casters intact on the base. This
high quality dresser has early dove-tailed construction on the dresser base top
up under the marble and also on the drawer ends; and an old label with
an original owners name handwritten with Chicora, SC written below on the base
up under the marble. This dresser has a grand, majestic presence with
incredible carvings and details; and amazingly left in its original state...you
can almost feel the history in this piece when you touch it....incredible!
This grand 19th century dresser measures 89 1/2 inches tall to the top of the
fancy carved crest on the mirror, height to the marble top is 35 inches, total
width of 49 inches , total depth of 23 1/2 inches and weighs approximately 250
lbs, This dresser does dis-assemble into 5 pieces for easier handling during
shipping and moving ( base, marble, mirror, two carved arm supports). The
original oval mirror measures 38 1/2 inches high by 27 3/4 inches and is
attached to the fancy carved arm supports with the original walnut finial
screws and the mirror does pivot front to back to adjust for viewing.
This Victorian dresser is in excellent antique condition for its age , and
is rich with history.The original mirror does have cloudiness and silver loss
as expected for a mirror of this age and there is a small chip of wood missing
on the bottom right side by the front foot that appears to have been missing
for some time. The gorgeous beveled edge cookie corner marble is stunning with
no issues, there is a small piece of the marble missing on the left back corner
underside which I have shown a close-up picture of this area. This is not
noticeable from the front or top and does not affect the integrity of the
marble at all.
