REDUCED SALE PRICE!

Fantastic Victorian Antique Horner Hand carved Dresser With Original Hardware, Original Key, Casters and Beveled Glass Mirror From Neville Plantation Estate -- 1880s Era -- VERY LARGE Piece!

This piece is an all-original and guaranteed-to-bowl-you-over RJ Horner Victorian style hand-carved dresser with original Horner hardware, casters and LARGE beveled mirror. The piece is 100% authentic, with its original working drawers intact, original fasteners, original key -- ALL complete and right. It comes from a Neville Plantation outbuilding emptied in the 1990's when I acquired the property, where it had been stored for many decades.

It is a classic RJ Horner piece from the late 1800's and features a stunning "look," with striking inlays and wonderful carving work on both the exterior and the accents. The construction is very solid -- as with all Horner pieces. This was NOT a cheap "knock-off" -- not back in the day and not now.

REDUCED SALE PRICE: $1,000 -- No PayPal payments or checks. Please don't ask. The Buyer will appear in person and pay in CASH or postal money order ONLY.

The photos are provided to demonstrate the condition of this splendid old dresser, which was retrieved from a barn, after all! It has the marks of that service BUT is still absolutely SOLID IN EVERY RESPECT.

I have cleaned out the contents, dusted it off inside and out but have not otherwise tried to clean it. Even in its current condition, the wood remains very attractive and the crafting of the carving work just knocks you out, honestly. This is a unique and lovely piece from "back in the day." All interior drawers slide in and out beautifully and the hand-crafted dovetailing is shown in the pictures. The wood grain is just worn and lovely, a great old patina on the inlays, especially after a proper reconditioning. The locking hardware still appears to work an the key to the piece has survived its long journey!

MEASUREMENTS and DETAILS:

The dresser has very appealing proportions, especially for those of us who dig the old Horner stuff. It is perfect as a functional item or would make an accent piece that would catch everyone's attention.

Height 82″ (6' 10" tall!); Width 55″; Depth 24". THIS IS A LARGE HORNER PIECE!

100% all original. The drawers slide easily open and closed JUST as they should, all connections and joints tight and AOK and all hardware (INCLUDING ORIGINAL KEY!) are/is original and right. VERY COLLECTIBLE AND PRICED RIGHT.
