Mid Century Modern high boy dresser from Bassett’s “Mayan” collection. Very unique design. This theme capitalizes on the jet age of the mid 20th Century. As American’s took to the skies traveling around the world, they developed a taste for artifacts of exotic cultures. A fascination for Far east, South American, and Caribbean culture set off a trend for pieces such as these. The Mayan carvings on the solid wood handles of the dresser are remarkable in person. No particle board. Walnut veneer over solid wood.
