I am so in love with this vintage twig and birch bark maple dresser that I would definitely keep it for myself if I had a spot for it! A master craftsperson took an old antique 4-drawer maple dresser and decorated the front and sides with the most beautiful birch bark and twig design we have ever seen! We bought this dresser at an auction in the Adirondacks, but don’t have any information on its provenance. We know the dresser is antique from the brass fittings, casters and dovetail drawers, but portions of the drawers (sides and bottoms) have been remade recently. We can hardly believe the amount of work that must have gone into this project. It was truly a labor of love. Drawer fronts are covered with white birch bark trimmed with twigs. Each maple drawer pull and the center of each drawer is decorated with a twig sunburst pattern. Each of the sides of the dresser is also decorated with four panels of the birch bark and twig pattern. Back is unfinished. Top has been refinished a beautiful color of maple and is in great shape. Incredibly, all of the birchbark and twig decorative work is in perfect shape. Not even one broken twig!
The dresser measures 38.5 inches wide by 36 inches high by 19.25 inches deep. The maple top has a bit of an overhang, and measures 40 inches wide by 20.5 inches deep. Bottom two drawers are very large, 34 inches wide by 7.5 inches high by 15.75 inches deep. Two half-size top drawers are 16.5 inches wide by 4.25 inches high by 14.5 inches deep. You can buy new birch bark and twig decorated furniture today made by master craftsmen in the Adirondacks and elsewhere, but we have never seen an antique piece like this one brought back to life with such exceptional design and craftsmanship. Wish we knew who made it and where we could get more! This piece is an absolute stunner and will be a centerpiece of your rustic home! Please note: this dresser is very heavy and will probably have to be delivered rather than shipped. Arrangements to be made upon purchase.
