Rway Furniture Double Bow Front Chest

The last few, which were also the first few, pieces we have featured by Rway furniture were on the sophisticated and well designed modern side.  This one is on the sophisticated and well designed classic side.  The double bow front mahogany chest by Rway has eight ample drawers with patinated brass hardware and sits on carved feet.  It would be great in a bedroom or living/ dining room, but would also make a nice double vanity in a bathroom.  60" l., 22" d., 36" h.  American, c. mid 20th c.  $975.00

Kroehler Furniture MCM Chest

It's all in the details....  While Kroehler produced some great looking case goods pieces, including several lines designed by Gilbert Rohde, we don't come across them very often.  This tall chest is one of three pieces we've just brought in from what seems to be a fairly rare series.  We couldn't find any other examples.  The series is sharply designed and each piece has interesting design details.  This five drawer dresser has a slim top drawer and four full depth drawers below, two of which are divided.  The drawer pulls and knobs are patinated brass with turquoise enamelled inset centers.  The legs have ebonized decoration with circular brass discs.  36" w., 18" d., 47" h.  American, c. 1960's  SOLD
