Victorian Pine Kitchen Dresser, Folksy Scarborough Fair
This is a quirky Victorian pine dresser which dates to the late 1800s.
It is made of solid pine and is one solid piece, fairly tall and narrow and quite shallow in depth, ideal for a small space in any home.
The dresser has a rustic country look which will suit a farmhouse or cottage, it is the perfect piece if you love well aged pine.
The base has double doors set under two drawers finished with brass drop handles. The doors open to reveal a useful fixed shelf for storage.
The top of the dresser is fitted with with three shelves, the bottom one is very shallow, designed for displaying plates but I think it is well suited to storing small jars of herbs.
The dresser has been decorated with the hand inscribed opening lyrics from the traditional folk song 'Scarborough Fair', a charming and quirky touch which makes this piece very unique.
The wood has a darkly waxed finish which has quite a low sheen.
The dresser is generally in good structural condition with many small marks of age and use to the wood and a couple of small patch repairs here and there. There is evidence of old historical woodworm damage and the wood is very characterful.
The drawers and cupboard are lined with stick on waxed paper which could be removed if desired. The doors have had modern plastic door catches added to keep the doors closed
This piece is very rustic and well aged.
