The ochre sand painted pine dresser base retaining the original paint distressed commensurate with age and with a good texture, having a characterful thick one piece top now almost devoid of any paint, over two deep frieze drawers each with ebonised knob handles, the whole standing on integral block legs and surviving from high Victorian England.

The base shows some attractive wear and tear with scuffing and losses commensurate with its age as per the photographs. We have had remedial work carried out so that the drawers run as they should, and the piece stands well and is ready to use.

This base would have been a central piece in the bustling kitchen or scullery of a British farmhouse in the nineteenth century for serving and preparing and the wear to the top of this piece is testament to that use.

An eminently useful and highly original base that is ready to use once more.
