Description Rare example of the George Nakashima Origins oversized Tall Dresser for Widdicomb. Condition is excellent. Wood is stunning from all angles. This example has the flat brass pulls, and smart wooden pegs that keep the drawers in place. The top’s bowed form is complimented by the dramatic wood grain. Solidly crafted walnut feet elevates the body. A sturdy and robust piece with tremendous storage capacity.

Part of the “Origins Collection” Nakashima designed for Widdicomb from 1958-1960. The series featured pagoda-like details and a laurel veneer finish that Nakashima called “Sundra,” Sanskrit for “thing of beauty.”
