Magnificent Welsh Elm Open Dresser Base

In the 18th century, provincial elm furniture was a common feature in rural areas and country homes. It was often paired with other indigenous country woods such as yew, ash, and oak to create distinctive and charming furniture pieces. This combination of woods allowed for the creation of sturdy and functional furniture with a rustic aesthetic.

Elm wood, possessed desirable qualities such as strength, durability, and an attractive grain pattern. Its availability and affordability made it a popular choice for provincial furniture makers who catered to the local communities. Elm furniture was often simpler in design compared to the more elaborate and ornate pieces found in urban areas.
