An 18th century dresser in a beautiful rich oak, with open plate shelves over a two drawer base with a twin arched apron on turned legs with a boarded lower shelf. Various hooks along the three shelves and top. Comes in two pieces for easy transport and maneuver. A delightful patina commensurate with age throughout, with some faint signs of an old green tint to the top of the shelves. In very good solid structural condition.
Date: 18th century
The average piece of furniture generates approximately 47kg of carbon dioxide equivalents – roughly the same as burning 5.3 gallons of petrol. Buying this item second-hand versus a newly made equivalent recovers the energy used to make it, rather than generating further emissions and using new materials.
