This one of two dressers is blind to one end i.e the right hand short end was designed to butt up to a wall and is not panelled with show timber. The top left cornice of the plate rack is also trimmed. Cupboard handles appear to be later matched.

Charles comments, "The oak dressers came from one of the sheltered housing cottages for the elderly at Whiteley Village, Weybridge, built for Whiteley’s employees, Whiteley’s Store being situated in Queensway, Bayswater. Most of the building work commenced from around 1915 onwards, finishing around 1919-1920.  These beautifully-crafted pieces were built into the kitchen areas of a group of houses at the village, either designed by Ernest George, Sir Aston Webb, or Mervyn McCartney. The dresser handles differ as the two pieces came from separate groups of houses."
