Pair of Dressers by Donald Deskey, circa 1940s

About

Pair of Dressers by Donald Deskey, circa 1940s. Gorgeous mirror image chests in flame maple and mahogany. Book-matched flame maple accents the mahogany cases. Drawer fronts are clad with Weldtex which Deskey invented in the late 1920s. The carved maple pulls are stylized leaves, very similar to designs Donald Deskey created for his textile patterns, examples which are in the archives of the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York City.
