Super excited to offer this 100% genuine Dorothy Draper Espana chest that has been restored to its original glory. This is NOT an imposter - and you will see many of those for thousands of dollars on the internet. This is genuine vintage iconic Bunching Chest designed by Dorothy Draper, manufactured by Heritage/ Henredon.
I also have a PAIR available if you are interested. Check out my Etsy store for that listing.
Dimensions are as follows
The insides are clean
I mean look at that finish!! Nothing else you see on the internet comes close to our finish. Black & gold is the classic & we chose to refinish this in that combination.
Each piece of furniture is sanded then primed, then we will spray 2-3 coats of Nitrocellulose Pre-cat lacquer. Then we will polish every surface with an auto polisher. All brass hardware is polished on a polishing wheel - it is shiny like new!! The beveling is gold leafed by hand.
Again - this is genuine, marked, numbered Draper that is spectacularly refinished. This is not a copycat or an "as is" item or some mediocre lacquer job.
There are 3-4 things to look for when spotting a real Espana vs a fake one ( Thanks to Circawho for this info)
1) The back is finished
2) The outside edges are beveled - Edges are not flush with the drawers.
3) It has a Heritage/Henredon or just Heritage stamp on the inside
4) Each Drawer spot is numbered.
Ours check all the all of the above.
This one is ready to ship. It will ship in 1-2 weeks after purchase.
Do your research on me as a seller - check my past sales, my feedback, check my social media (mainly Instagram and Facebook) to see detailed pics of my work. Ask questions.
As with any vintage refinished pieces - there will always be imperfections in the piece and in the newly applied finish.
