From our North Texas picker we obtained this very fine American Oak Karges Dresser. With a label that states, "#796, Karges Furniture Co, Plain & Quartersawn Oak, Suits & Wardrobes, Evansville, Ind" this dresser has commonly become known as the "Harlow" dresser, made famous by the lovely (silent) movie star, Jean Harlow. Tight-grained quarter- sawn oak flowes over the entire piece. A large, full-size drawer on the bottom with above 3 bow front drawers on either side frame the lovely shapely free-form beveled mirror. The original mirror has been replaced with a new beveled mirror. Isn't it lovely? The bevel is 1 1/4" wide & it follows all the curves of the oak frame. The original mirror was dated Jan. 13, 1909. This is one very fine piece of furniture. In our almost 20 years in the antique business, we have owned only two other Karges pieces, a wardrobe and a hiboy. This dresser has been professionally restored & refinished. I know the buyer of this piece will be as proud to own it as we are to offer it for sale.
