A beautiful Mid-Century dresser manufactured by DS Vorster & Co that can also be a desk when the mirror is removed. See photos for examples of both uses. DS Vorster was a renowned local manufacturer in the 50's and 60's of high quality furniture pieces with clean lines. Not a piece we find often, but then we found more than one.
The Sapele Mahogany was restored and sealed and in excellent vintage condition. Note that when you do wish to use it as a desk, preferably ensure you have a height adjustable chair. Mirror in overall good condition, with age related marks etc.
This piece comes with the mirror and the matching stool (excludes the office chair pictured in some photos).
As with mostly all mid-century pieces it is a good combination of solid wood & a high quality wood veneer. Quality old veneer was long-lasting and for this reason it can be retouched or sanded and refinished. The history of veneer on furniture is a long and honorable tradition, and it depends on workmanship, condition and thickness of the veneer itself.

Although all effort is made to refurbish our furniture to best represent their original state, it must be noted that majority of the items we source date between the 1950’s to late 1970’s. For this reason and although restored, signs of their vintage condition & age might still be visible. We will normally point out any visible / notable concerns. Take note of all photos or view the item in-store prior to purchasing.
