Decided to post some newer picks this evening. This one I enjoy very much. I am lucky enough to live close to a large auction house. So I sometimes put in low ball bids on larger furniture, because not everyone has the convenience to be able to drive and pick it up. So that is how I got this one, not like I have room for it or anything..... I have problems ;)

Comments welcome, looks like dovetailed drawers on both ends, well constructed, original pulls with handmade screws, great condition, and do I dare to say in original condition? I have to check it closely. The large turned feet make this piece. Nice and straight but the rounded feet and knobs make it really handsome. Enjoy!

    It looks like a beauty!

    I'd like to see a picture of the back.

    Also how are the feet attached? Any way to get a photo of the bottom and the feet where they are attached?

    Surely, scottvez, I will do that now and add the link. I was finally able to get the time to bring it in and snap some pics. I will also get a shot of one of the nails. Thanks for the kind words!

    The huge back boards are great.

    Certainly agree that it is mid 19th century. The lack of drawer locks is unusual.
