Certified Price





Posted on February 28, 2018.

Presented for sale here is an absolutely beautiful, mid century modern, walnut and silver, 8 drawer long dresser / credenza from 60s. This piece is designed by the famed American designer, John Van Koert for Drexel under “Profile” line. This piece features 4 smaller drawers on top and 4 deep drawers below, unusual yet very useful configuration.

Danish american designer John Van Koert was strongly influenced by works of Scandinavian design power houses of 50s, and created many, very nice modern pieces in 50s and 60s. His shapely and sculptural, yet very elegant, clean lines are unique and quite immediately recognizable, as they do not have overly edge or embellished feels, some of his peer’s works shows. The unusual tea-drop shaped, silver pulls complement wood beautifully and are product of his career in jewelry and flatware design in addition to furniture design. His Profile lines for Drexel was among the most popular work of his and thus we do see them occasionally. However, the vast majority of pieces in this line out there, have either less attractive ash finish or walnut finish that has gone lighter and grayed over the time, which are not ideal. You can notice this, if you search on-line for other pieces available and see the pictures closely.

Fortunately, this particular piece is an exception that is hard-to-find exception! It is a desirable medium dark walnut version survived. The shade of finish is just right, light enough so that the its beautiful walnut grain is prominent, yet is dark enough to give outstanding contrast with the iconic silver tear drop drawer pulls.

This piece is in an excellent condition with its finish professionally and expertly cleaned up, looking fresh and glistening. Boasting its original beauty as intended! The beautifully paitnaed silver drawer pulls are left in tact, as the pale, yellow gold tone of silver with is more desirable than whiter tone of polished silver. Structurally super solid, and all the drawers work well.

Obviously high quality piece with all solid wood and dovetail construction etc. The two of top drawers feature removable sliding wood trays and two of the deep drawers have removable dividers. Nice features fitting high quality that Drexel always have realized in their products.

This piece measures 60" Long x 19" Deep and 32" high. The shapely top part is 21" deep.
