This one-of-a-kind mid-century beauty is made by Bassett. It has been redesigned with a modern white and navy blue theme. The designer has stenciled a verse from the French Poem “Le Lac” which was written by the famous French poet Alphonse de Lamartine from the French romantic movement of the 19th century. The French text translates to: “Oh time suspend your flight, and you favorable hours suspend your course! Let us savor the fleeting delights, the most beautiful of our days!” The dresser is solid wood with five dovetail drawers. The walnut wood is in excellent condition. The top of the dresser shows some minor wear that is not very noticeable. All the drawers work well (no drop drawers). The brass handles are a nice touch. The French Poem has been added to the front of the dresser as well as inside the top drawer.
