A very satisfied client who now owns an antique Empire chest of drawers. Bryan Stahl gave me the white glove service. He was pleasant, friendly, courteous, and prompt in arriving on time. Super careful with all details. He was not only on time but he wanted to deliver it right away!I loved that about him the furniture came wrapped up as he put it "as if it were explosives" if you are looking for quality fine furniture look no further. Bryan is the right choice for you.

Rob & Corinna D'costa, Illinois Thank you for sending your Business cards & the note.The dresser looks great, it was a pleasure meeting you and your children. Federal/Hepplewhite/Chippendale Style "swirl mahogany", bow front chest of drawers. A Restored Masterpiece, a delight for the eyes! Made by the Baker Furniture Company..... I acquired this stunning piece from an estate.
It was in need of some tender loving restoration. I restored the finish, including all of the drawer inside compartments with many, many coats of hand rubbed varnish over the natural mahogany...
The chest has a deep, rich, luster showcasing the wood! The drawers increase in depth(graduated) as you go down the chest, a classic feature.
Dovetail joinery at all 4 corners of each drawer. Drawers all have a extra stiffener support board built into the middle bottom of the drawers, a sure indication of high quality& craftsmanship. The mahogany veneered over poplar secondary woods. Original brasses, buffed the brasses and sealed.
Makers branded mark(crown & tulip) on the outside of the top drawer. (see photo) This is a Baker Furniture Company's Crown & Tulip Branding. Baker began using the crown & tulip branded logo in 1939.The makers mark has special meaning.. The crown stands for furniture made for royalty & the tulip is a tribute to the fine Dutch craftsman in Michigan who made these fine pieces! The top drawer has 2 removable oak dividers which can be used to divide the top drawer into 3 compartments, or remove the dividers to have one large drawer. This chest has wonderful patina such as small nicks, scratches, dings, worn veneer edges, and character marks in the wood. Depth at the widest point of the top.. I will shrink wrap this and help you load it at no charge. The item "Baker Georgian Federal Chippendale Style Bowfront Mahogany Antique Chest Dresser" is in sale since Wednesday, April 4, 2012.
