Description Exquisite pair of Dorothy Draper Viennese collection chests professionally refinished in ivory lacquer and embellished with acanthus leaf motif backplates. Brass hardware was professionally polished and lacquered to retain the brass glow – no need to polish. The profile is whimsical featuring a curved bow-like front profile. The legs follow with more curves that come together and continue with gold details from front to back. The chests are authentic and bear the Dorothy Draper label. The size of the chests lends them for use as bedside chests/nightstands. The appearance is joyous, beautiful and timeless – designers the like of Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler were hugely influenced by Dorothy Draper.

Dorothy Draper’s been heralded “America’s most fabulous decorator” and is credited with inventing Hollywood Regency style. Her famed taste later expanded to furniture design and she produced collections for Ficks Reed, Heritage and Henredon. The España (circa 1955) and Viennese (circa 1963) collections became infamous and are highly sought after. And within the celebrated Viennese collection, these chests are the hardest to find.
