This Bassett Furniture dresser, from their "Monterey" line, was designed by Leo Jiranek and only in production for 10 months in 1962-1963. It features three lower drawers, and two upper drawers with a sculpted design. The "X" inlays are rosewood; the rest of the dresser is a beautiful walnut veneer over solid wood construction. The piece has been professionally restored.

42ʺW × 18ʺD × 45ʺH

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

From the original advertisement:

"MONTEREY" is forward-thinking and imaginative, an exciting new idea in contemporary modern furniture with a future. . . a mellow blending of Scandinavian influence with our own American conception of contemporary design. Decorative inlays with inlaid Rosewood designs that serve as drawer pulls, horizontal interestingly placed wood drawer pulls, sculptured legs and aprons, all tend to give Bassett's new "MONTEREY" group a fresh look. "MONTEREY" in a new Bassett color called Carmel Walnut brings out the beauty of the Walnut veneers. Pieces of generous proportions, attention to details in the mirrors, beds, dresser bases, night stand and chest, all tend to make "MONTEREY" one of Bassett's outstanding bedroom suites.
