The antique dresser first appeared in the 17th century in Oak and Pine, located in Wales and northern England. The kitchen Dresser from the Georgian period is usually more rustic, with pegged construction, old clout nails and plate racks for storing pots and pans.

The best examples come with the original aged character that has been lovingly waxed over 100s of years or in the original paint finish.
The Victorian and Edwardian’s preferred the use of the sideboard, so the dresser did not make a revival until the end of the Victorian period. These dressers were finer looking and designed to display fine china but also have drawers for cutlery and cupboards for the larger bowls.
