This piece has been professionally restored, but like all vintage pieces, does show signs of wear due to prior use.

From the original advertisement:
“John Van Koert, designer of Drexel’s Profile group, has brought fresh enthusiasm as well as a keen professional eye to the furniture field. This extensive group has great poise and although contemporary in spirit, is adaptable and answers the demand for furniture that neither fakes the spirit of a past style nor merely expresses a designer’s whim.
Profile is made of walnut and pecan woods. …The finish is a rich-ripe brown that harmonizes with either lighter or darker finishes. Soft in texture, it provides for easy care, yet protects against scuffs and scars.
There are no abrupt angles in Profile. Tapered legs curve gracefully into the tops of tables and backs of chairs.”
