    I found this A.W. Dethloff & Co when I went to visit my aunt in WA.
    It's in beautiful shape and I just love it!
    I seem to be partial to the dresser trunks as I think they are still just as durable, versatile, stylish, and useful, as they were then.
    I have tried to find a little more information on this maker and have found very little.
    If you would like to share, that would be great!
    Not much else to say as the pictures tell it all.
    It looks amazing, I love that there is still red color around the drawers too.
    Thanks for looking.

      A rather unusual trunk. Haven't seen one with drawers like that before.

      Hi fortapache, this is my second dresser trunk, the first one is a bit more elaborate. It's I think my second or third post on here.
      Check it out, it's very cool as well.
      Thanks for love!

      It's actually the first 2 of my posts. Sorry about that.
