This seven foot dresser, from American of Martinsville's "Dania" line, was designed by Merton Gershun. It features six louvered drawer fronts on the left and right, made of solid walnut. The central three drawers are hidden behind beautiful walnut doors that have the original brass handles and "bullet shaped" metal hinges. The top and sides have beautiful walnut grain; and the tapered legs are paired with a brass stretcher. This piece has been professionally restored but there are a few scratches on the top and front that are from preexisting use. As with all vintage pieces, there are signs of wear.
