My impression is that the carvings on the dresser are from a much older piece of furniture, from the 17th C and therefore maybe part of an original suite of furniture for this room. That’s just speculation though. It’s a fabulous piece.

@William: I agree, it’s incredibly intricate.
@Susan: I wondered whether you would have more information. I think it’s a fabulous piece as well.
@Stuart: You, as a woodworker, would certainly be able to appreciate the hours that went into constructing the cabinet!
