This nine-drawer dresser is an incredible example of quality craftsmanship from the White Furniture Company of Mebane, NC. I believe it is part of the Lorraine Collection from 1954, which consisted of 44 bedroom and dining room furniture pieces. This collection focused on French Provincial styling with free-hand carving, cabriole legs, and dainty scroll feet.
This stunning dresser is in beautiful shape with minor wear in a select few areas. I've rejuvenated the fruitwood to bring out its grain and depth of color and refinished the original hardware in soft brass/gold. All drawers open smoothly, as is a standard characteristic of White Furniture Co. The top row of drawers are deep-set, with a faux front giving the appearance of dual drawers. (The dresser consists of 9 drawers but appears to have 12).
The large mirror attaches with two long metal brackets but also has a hanging wire for additional support (or if you'd prefer to hang it separately). The brackets come with wide screws for simple installation, but additional screws can be inserted into the small holes on each end for added security.
The dimensions for the dresser alone are 60" from side to side, 22" front to back, and 36" from bottom to top. The mirror is 56" wide and approximately 39" tall, bringing the combined pieces to a height of 75" at a minimum. This set is incredibly sturdy, quite heavy, and easily one of the most well-made pieces I've had the pleasure of working on.
Extremely minor imperfections, expected with a vintage piece. A couple of worn spots on the front protruding edge of the top (shown in photos). On the left end panel, there is a small indentation approximately 2" long. This is not a deep gauge and is fairly inconspicuous. (Shown in photos) The right side of the top also has wear on one of the protruding edges, slightly rougher than the others. (Shown in photos) The mirror is in surprisingly good condition with only very small markings in a few small spots (shown in photos with quarter). The frame of the mirror has one small crack in the wood (not shown) that appears to have been repaired at a previous time. It has been color-matched to blend with the rest of the frame and while about 1-2" long, it is easy to miss. The dresser top also has extremely subtle wear marks/scratches, but less than I would typically expect for a piece of its age and only visible at certain angles. Overall in amazing condition with minor imperfections that show a bit of history.
