About

This exquisite and rich decorated Renaissance dresser was made in the Southern part of the Netherlands, circa 1670. It was made in the finest quality European oak and Walnut during the Dutch Golden Century. The dresser is divided into two doors at the bottom with two drawers above. Between and next to the drawers there are three magnificent sculptures in solid walnut wich represent faith hope and love. The left sculpture depicts faith with the cross and grain ears. The mid represents love with its attributes burning heart and cupid. The right sculpture depicts hope with the anchor and torch. Below the sculptures, there are large half twisted columns or Solomonic columns in solid walnut. The doors are decorated with geometrically star form raised panels. The whole front is made in walnut and walnut veneer. The solid brass keyplate, drawer pulls and studs are all original and authentic to the piece, as well as its lock and key. This dresser is of exceptional quality and in a very good authentic state with no restorations in the past. The Dutch golden age the 17th century was an important century for the Netherlands. The region separated from the Spanish Empire and formed its own republic. Dutch merchants established their first colonies in the Americas and opened up trade networks around the world. The Dutch economy flourished as much of Europe's trade began passing through Amsterdam. This money helped foster the arts, leading to the rise of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Rubens. This was the Dutch Golden Age. The strong Dutch economy and celebration of the arts provided the financial and cultural security to inspire middle and upper-class citizens to buy lots of furniture. This was a big change from the sparsely furnished homes of medieval times. Dutch patrons demanded high-quality, comfortable, and stylish products, and furniture makers obliged. Dutch furniture of the 17th century was lighter, more comfortable, and more versatile than in many other parts of the world. A key form of Dutch furniture in the 17th century was the cabinet, a taller furniture item that had replaced ground-level medieval chests. Cabinets were essential furniture items in most Dutch homes, as well as in the Dutch colonies. Since cabinets were generally used to hold valuable items like linens or silverware, they were works of art themselves, and we see some of the most important styles of Dutch furniture applied here.
