    Several years ago after buying my house I needed a special dresser and couldn't find one anywhere. So I went downtown Indianapolis to Foutain Square to one of my favorite antique stores. At this particular time upstairs was this outstanding tiger oak washstand with the serpetine front . After seeing it I walked around for awhile thinking if it would look right in the bedroom as a dresser, but knowing it would because I had already made my mind up when I first saw it. Well we carried it down stairs and loaded it up and I took it home. It works perfect as a dresser. I can't tell you, I've had so many compliments on this piece.

      Gorgeous piece! They sure don't make them like that anymore. The craftsmanship was superb back then and people really took pride in their work. I too, have furnished my home with antique furniture, lamps, pictures, etc....I can honestly say, many of my furnishings are made in the good ol' USA! That's one advantage to buying antiques :)

      VictorianLady, I don't know who you are but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart today for taking the time and noticing all my find things. Someone who really appreciates nice things. I have worked so hard trying to collect things made right here in the USA also! I would love to see your place as well knowing it's beauty just like your taste in finer things. You made my day! You have a great and wonderful week! Michael

      Would you happen to know the maker/manufacturer, where it was made, and/or around when it was made? And, are the carvings "applied" or in the wood on your piece?

      I ask because this is the second commode I've seen online with the paws and roll pedestal. More often I see them on sideboards and buffets. And, I think the other one may have been either in Virginia or also Indiana. I am wondering if it is characteristic of the time period, or region, or manufacturer. Thank you!
