Iowa Dresser

I thought you guys might want to see this chest I bought in Iowa. I'm not sure of its origin, but it is a very well made piece. All the drawer bottoms and the back are chamfered, narrow dovetailed drawers and the over all curves of this piece made it irresistible! I knew as soon as I seen it I had to have it for my house, wasn't sure where I would put it, but I knew I could find it a home! Believe it or not, the mirror was already there, didn't even have to move it!

It even has a hidden compartment, which I think is very cool, not that I have anything worth hiding, but it makes your imagination run wild! Can you imagine living a country where you had to hide valuable papers or money?

The carved wood details one the sides are so elegant. I'm sure this piecs will stay with me for a while. Off course I had to get rid of another piece to make it fit, but thats one of the reasons I'm in this business!
