Dorothy Draper Viennese Collection Ivory Chest with Gold Incised Drawers


Dimensions:H 30.75 in. x W 44 in. x D 18 in.
Condition:Refinished. Wear consistent with age and use. This chic chest is in great condition and was professionally refinished in ivory and gold lacquer. Brass pulls were professionally polished and lacquered to maintain shine.

Hollywood glamour then and now, this Viennese Collection chest of drawers was designed by the Queen of Hollywood Regency – Dorothy Draper – in the early 1960s and features solid brass rectangular pulls centered amidst incised rectangles set in an octagonal drawer front pattern, circa 1960. Dorothy Draper’s incised pattern purposefully blurs the rectangular drawer fronts and instead focuses the admirer on the glamorous honeycomb pattern outlined in gold lacquer and finished with glowing solid brass drawer pulls. She transforms a large, functional three drawer chest into an artistic object with golden shapes and textures. The pattern also interlocks in pairs or sets of three, so these chests look especially grand in sets. The piece is finished on all sides which allows it to float in a room. As they say, the eye has to travel and this Dorothy Draper Viennese chest has you covered.


This regal Viennese chest of drawers was professionally refinished in a warm ivory lacquer. Incised details were restored to the original gold lacquer. Rectangular brass pulls were professionally polished and are stamped and numbered. Interested in a pair or more? Perhaps a custom color? We carry many iconic Dorothy Draper pieces in both the Viennese Collection and the España Collection.
