Pair of Dorothy Draper Viennese Collection Chests Lacquered in Ivory, circa 1963

About the Item

Exquisite pair of Dorothy Draper Viennese collection chests professionally refinished in ivory lacquer and embellished with acanthus leaf motif back plates. Brass hardware was professionally polished and lacquered to retain the brass glow - no need to polish. The profile is whimsical featuring a curved bow-like front profile. The legs follow with more curves that come together and continue with gold details from front to back. The chests are authentic and bear the Dorothy Draper label. The size of the chests lends them for use as bedside chests / nightstands. The appearance is joyous, beautiful and timeless - designers the like of Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler were hugely influenced by Dorothy Draper.  Dorothy Draper's been heralded "America's most fabulous decorator" and is credited with inventing Hollywood Regency style. Her famed taste later expanded to furniture design and she produced collections for Ficks Reed, Heritage and Henredon. The España (circa 1955) and Viennese (circa 1963) collections became infamous and are highly sought after. And within the celebrated Viennese collection, these chests are the hardest to find.

  • Dorothy Draper Viennese Collection Ivory Chest with Gold Incised Drawers
    By Dorothy Draper, Henredon
    Located in Saint Louis, MO
    Hollywood glamour then and now, this Viennese Collection chest of drawers was designed by the Queen of Hollywood Regency - Dorothy Draper - in the early 1960s and features solid brass rectangular pulls centered amidst incised rectangles set in an octagonal drawer front pattern, circa 1960. Dorothy Draper's incised pattern purposefully blurs the rectangular drawer fronts and instead focuses the admirer on the glamorous honeycomb pattern outlined in gold lacquer and finished with glowing solid brass drawer pulls. She transforms a large, functional three drawer chest into an artistic object with golden shapes and textures. The pattern also interlocks in pairs or sets of three, so these chests look especially grand in sets. The piece is finished on all sides which allows it to float in a room. As they say, the eye has to travel and this Dorothy Draper Viennese chest...
