An incredible original two piece dresser or credenza set by esteemed designer Raymond Loewy.
The piece on the right has 6 drawers (one bottom double) and the one on the left has three drawers and a door with cabinet space. The dressers/credenza came from one home, where they were purchased by the original owner in the 1950s. Another couple moved into the home in the 1980s, where they inherited this piece.
The piece is in good to very good vintage condition. It is really an amazing piece and one I’d love to have in our own home! In terms of cosmetic imperfections, there are a few small scuffs and we took a photo of the largest ones (I have very small fingers so you can see the size as compared to my fingernail :). The other imperfection is that the second owners reglued the drawer fronts. When you open the drawers, you can see some of the old glue along back of the piece along the seam (see closeup). It is on a few of the drawers, but not visable at all unless you look on the back of them. Finally, one of the legs was a little loose when it was turned upside down. Normally we’d tighten it, but we did not want to alter the piece at all.
Structurally, the piece is in great shape. When we lifted it, we noticed one leg was a little wobbly, but it is not wobbly when in a stationary position. We did not try to even tighten it as we want to keep the piece in original “as found” condition. On the back of the piece, a very small drip paint mark, which typically comes out very easily, but we did not want to alter the piece at all..
The piece came with additional hardware that the first owners used and the second owners removed decades ago. There are feet caps? that can sit under the feet. There are 6 of them, 5 same sized and one smaller (that we think goes on the back leg). There is also hardware. Some of the larger bolts attach the two pieces together and the smaller ones were supposedly drawer stoppers. However, the placement wasn’t obvious to us and we didn’t want to play with the piece as the drawers open and close just fine. The dresser is currently in 2 pieces, but were told it could be attached to one piece. But we have not tested it out :)
Approximate measures (each): 40"w, x 20"d x 30"h.
This piece is for local pickup. Local delivery possible. For non locals, we’d be happy to work with a shipper of your choice or help you in locating a shipper (we use Uship mostly, but we can guide you through using this interface).
We have lots of photos, so if you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask!
Thanks and have a great day!
