Bought this dresser in 2005 from an estate sale in a home. The resident was born and died in this home at the age of 95. Dresser was with this man ( from his parents ) his whole life. Estimated age of dresser is 120 years. Material is cherry wood. All wood joints are dovetailed. Dims are 49"H x 37.5"W x 22" deep.
Piece was purchased from a man who had the piece in his house only for his entire 95 year old life. It never left this home until I bought it.
