9-Drawer Drexel Campaign Dresser - SOLD
This mid-century "Campaigner" is looking awfully dapper in this rich shade of green. Phil and I love the depth of this color, and we love the way it compliments the beautiful brass hardware. The 9-drawer chest was manufactured in 1965 by Drexel. Campaign style furniture stems from 19th century British military campaign trunks, which were specifically designed to break down into sections, making them easier for soldiers to carry. The brass corners protected the trunks from dings. Now, they're simply decorative. This chest is very well built. The drawers have dovetail joints. One of the top drawers has a built-in wooden divider. The chest measures: 58 1/8"W x 19 1/4"D x 30 1/4"H.
