Pair of Zinc Metal Wrapped Commode Chests or Dressers


Dazzling pair of commodes, chests, or dressers featuring a hand-wrapped polished zinc sheet metal veneer. The zinc metal is secured with hundreds of hand-hammered tiny nails in a painstaking laborious process. The chests are crafted from a wood case featuring a serpentine four drawer front. The top of the commodes have a decorative faux rope design on the front and side borders. The drawers have pairs of acrylic or Lucite pulls in a round shape with facets. The cabinets are supported by tapered cone shaped feet. The hand polished finish has an aged patina that is rich and soft having a nickel like finish. Beautiful as bedside chests or gracing an entry.
