ITEM #: 908YWG22P
KIPP STEWART "DIRECTIONAL" WALNUT TALL DRESSER
Designed for Calvin, original label in drawer, circa 1960s
Item # 908YWG22P
An interesting ten drawer tall dresser designed by Kipp Stewart for the "Directional" collection of Calvin Furniture Co., the cabinet form is sleek and austere. By utilizing a pair of doors instead of the long series of drawers, the case is tidy and undistracted.
The case is crafted of walnut, both in the solid and veneers, with a sculpted rising lip on the back edge of the top. Either door swings open to reveal four small drawers at the top over a graduated set of six drawers, all machine dovetailed and sliding easily in and out of the case.
Notable are the tapered legs with their through-tenon construction and angular form.
An original metal plaque is screwed to the inside of the upper drawer.
Measurements: 58 5/8" H x 31 5/8" W x 18" D
Old repair to right door handle; old scratch to door, other minor scuffs. Minor finish color variation.
