Midcentury 1950s John Van Koert/Drexel Dresser - $450 (Catonsville, MD)

A beautiful and timeless midcentury dresser/credenza by the Drexel Counterpoint. This piece was designed by John Van Koert who was first a jewelry designer for Harry Winston before being hired by Drexel to design furniture for model rooms and department stores.

This piece features a clean and simple design and is constructed of solid wood (cherry?), with 6 drawers that have wood surroundings and chrome inset handles (some say they were made to look like diamond rings). It is a nice size that can serve as a dresser, to hold a smaller flatscreen or be placed in a dining room. The top two rows of drawers have dividers in them as well.

Piece is in very good vintage condition with some light age appropriate wear (e.g., a few chips, etc., but in amazing shape for a decades old piece). The one imperfection worth noting is that the top right drawer surround has a crack in it. It does not affect the drawer functionality and did not even show in the closeup, but it is there.

Approximate measures: 48"w, 20"d, 30"t.

Cash only, please.
