False CONWY DRESSER SEVEN This 2 door version of a North Wales dresser shows a rack above a base with 2 drawers and fielded panels. As a general rule, North Wales dressers usually had backboards on the rack and both cupboards and drawers below, in contrast to the south which tended to have open bases. The term ‘ Welsh Dresser’has loosely been used to describe dressers of the more open southern type. True Welsh Dressers often have more elaborately scrolled uprights on the rack and more decorative, carved, or even pierced aprons on both the rack and base.
