This Pine Hutch is known as The Webb Dresser. Dresser is the British term for what we would call a hutch. The original, an 18th Century New England piece, was once owned by Electra Havermeyer Webb, founder of the Shelburne Museum. It stood in her Shelburne, Vermont residence, "The Brick House". After her death the original was given to her friend Henry Dupont and today it is displayed at Dupont's Winterthur Museum in Delaware. I was commissioned by the Shelburne Museum to build a reproduction of the original so that they could have one at the Museum.
All of the molding details are cut by hand and all of the surfaces are planed by hand. This gives the piece a rich feel. It is the real thing.
This piece is huge and may not fit in many homes. It can be redesigned to fit in your home.
