Antique Blue Dresser with Mirror $150

This wonderful antique dresser would be wondeful in a bedroom -- or even as an entryway piece!  I'm guessing it's from around the 1920's. 

It has three drawers (two small and one large) with reproduction glass knobs.  The top two drawers have the original keyholes (but no keys).  The bevel-edged mirror is original.  Because of it's age, it hangs a little crooked but, to me, that is part of its charm! 

On the back of the dresser is stamped "B.E. Johnson, Kaw, Oklahoma".  Kaw, Oklahoma was covered over by Kaw Lake in 1975 so the original home of this dresser is now under water.  Kind of a fun history!

$150 firm.

Vintage Hoosier Kitchen Cabinet - SOLD

This fun Hoosier kitchen cabinet is probably from the 1930's based on the deco style of the hinges.

It is vintage so it has lots of that wondeful kind of character that comes from wear, use, age, and love. It is missing one drawer but has a basket in it's place. It is also missing the rolling tamblor door (where to upper basket is in the photo). The hinges on the lower portion are different than those on the upper portion (see photos below - the rounder hinges are on the bottom and the more angular hinges are on the top). There is a piece missing from the upper left corner of the bottom drawer (you can see in the photo if you look closely). There are chips in the edges of the enamel counter surface as in the norm for these pieces.

The cabinet is newly painted in a wonderful apple green with a flat finish which is a bit atypical but seems to work for this piece. If the paint finish or the color are a deal-breaker for you, we can repaint it for you for a little extra.

Another view.

Black Four Poster Bed with Crystal Finials (full size) $100

This is a wonderful vintage four poster that I dressed up with crisp black paint and crystal finials. 

It fits a full size mattress and measures 57 inches across.  The footboard is styled in such a way as to feature the bedding at the foot of the bed rather than a wood panel.  This bed is in excellent condition except for the feet of two of the legs where portions of the feet are chipped off (see photo below).  These bad spots have been painted over and should also be obscured by the bedding so they shouldn't be a problem.  The bed does come with rails which are not pictured by are wood and painted black.


Detail of damage to feet. 

Black Dresser with Basket Drawers SOLD

This is a relatively new black dresser retrofitted with baskets in place of the top drawer.  The baskets could easily be spray painted any color to coordinate with your decor.  This dresser has a few nicks and scratches but is, overall, in very good condition.  Very handsome!

Map Dresser $125 -- SOLD

This is a small highboy dresser that has been painted a wonderful blue.  The five drawers have been decoupaged with maps and have handsome silver knobs.  The dresser measures 41" high x 24" wide by 14" deep.  The decoupaging has been sealed for added durability.  This would be great in a boy's room, of course, but would also be a fun addition to an entryway or welcome storage for kid's artwork and momentos.
