This is quite a beautiful piece. This dresser is my favourite of the Ducal Dressers and has a timeless sophistication.
Ducal furniture was Britain's leading manufacturer of Solid Pine Furniture and is sadly no longer in production. Ducal only used timber from forests where strict environmental management ensured that at least four new trees were planted for every one that was felled, so not only is it superior in quality but it is also a sound environmental choice.
Unlike Flatpack furniture this item is a Solid piece that will never date and can be passed down through the generations.
The Base Unit comprises of 4 cupboards with Shelving in each one for extra storage. All of the shelves are height adjustable. There is a beautiful breakfront Detail on the base.
The Top unit also bears the Breakfront comprising of 2 Glass Cupboards with Bevelled Glass. The glazed cupboards contain the original lighting which is in perfect working order. There are Brass keys included to lock away any valuables you may have. All of the internal shelves are glass allowing the light to flow through and are all height adjustable. The central area has 3 large shelves and are all height adjustable.
The top has been sanded down to reveal the natural grain and treated with oil to enhance the natural grain and to provide a waterproof shield to the wood. The Dresser top has also been waxed to seal the oil in.
I have fully refurbished this is Farrow and Ball off White no 3. All hinges and handles are removed prior to starting refurbishment. This dresser has been washed, sanded down and treated with primer and undercoat to allow the adhesion of the paint. Then it has been given 3 to 4 coats of Farrow and Ball Paint.
This Dresser comes in two parts for transport.
The whole dresser is then treated with a clear matt polyurethane varnish with a diamond coat to give it more durability against every day knocks and bumps!
