This dresser is in the "Eastlake" style and made about 1890-1900, the style getting its name from Charles Eastlake, who wrote a book entitled "Hints on Household Taste" in 1868. In this influential book he rejected the ornate decorations favored on earlier Victorian furniture and espoused simpler more incised rectangular lines sparingly accented with machined forms and varying wood types for decoration. This example is oak with walnut panels. The American version of this style were more ornate than Eastlake's original designs, but his name has been forever linked to this furniture ever since. Values vary considerably depending on quality ofconstruction, wood type and how close they follow original Victorian designs. In the current market comparable dressers sell in the $100.00- $150.00 range at auction.
