This beautiful Lane tall dresser comes to you from the 1960’s. It comes from the original owner who bought all of his furniture from Lane because he worked for the company. He and his wife got married in the 60’s and furnished it with Mid-Century Modern furniture of course because they were cool! This petite but functional dresser has 4 drawers. The top drawer is a double one so it looks like 2 but it is just one deep one. It is in very good condition. I did a coat of poly on the top but other than that it is as original as they come.

This beautiful piece measures; 38″ Long by 19″ deep by 41″ tall.
History of Lane
In March of 1912 a man named John Lane purchased a box plant in Altavista, Virginia. His son, Ed Lane, was 21 at the time and had little manufacturing experience. Ed was encouraged by his father to try his hand at starting a chest factory in the newly acquired plant. The Lanes didn’t know how successful their new venture was going to be, therefore, they didn’t start out putting their name on it. Instead, they incorporated the little company as the Standard Red Cedar Chest Company, with John Lane as President and Ed Lane as Vice President and General Manager. From cedar chests, Lane expanded to occasional tables in 1951, case goods in 1956, and accent pieces in 1965.
