Bassett Furniture's "Aztec" line was designed by Leo Jiranek and was only in production for a brief period. It features a beautiful design and carved wooden handles for the drawers, inspired by carved Aztec motifs. This dresser has six drawers and comes with a matching mirror.  This line is commonly misidentified as "Mayan" - in fact, the finish was called "Mayan walnut," hence the confusion.

Dresser: 60" L x 19" D x 30" H
Mirror: 29" W x 45.5" H

These have been professionally restored, but like all vintage pieces, they show signs of wear due to prior use.

From the original advertisement:

“The “AZTEC COLLECTION” is an exciting, fresh and new look in a contemporary modern bedroom group by Bassett. 

This is an impressive expression of design achievement derived through a marriage of the past and present. The carved wood pulls and plaques set the design theme for the group influenced by the carved motifs of the ancient Aztecs that have been found, the group expresses a timely atmosphere.

Finished in “MAYAN” Walnut – a rich light brown color with a patina that complements the shadow created by the carvings. Specially designed drop pulls accent the carved motifs and add greatly to the charm of the pieces.”
