Merton Gershon for American of Martinsville Dania Line - COMPLETE Bedroom set
EXTREMELY RARE FIND - Not even found on 1stDibs in this condition!
Today we have procured this very nice, Merton Gershon for American of Martinsville 'Dania' line, complete bedroom suite. A single owner and single room use since the early 1960's when purchased. Aside from moving around within the bedroom, this set has not been outside of the home since delivered. A single, non-smoking and non-pet owner household. There is but a single medium blemish - a small circle on one of the night stands. Even the normal 'vintage wear' nicking and associated blemishes are NOT evident on this set. An occasional nick and scrape can be found from minimal use, but NONE are distracting nor a cause for any concern.
Now to the components of this set.
A great and unique piece in and of itself. All drawers are easy sliding and seat well when parked. The topmost drawer is perhaps the most unique having an elliptical edge on the drawer and the dressers receiving edge as well. The drawers interior is sectioned into six separate areas for pocket change, tie pins, jewelry etc etc etc. When closed, the drawer almost disappears. The three side-by-side drawers (11 1/2 by 8 1/2) are rock solid and add a great visual to the highboy. The bottom drawers have the Dania line trademark fronts - visually striking! Lower section and legs are banded with brass strapping throughout. The entire unit measures out as follows: 38 inches in width, 17 inches in depth at the top and 18 1/2 inches in depth at the bottom half and the entire unit stands in a striking position at 44 inches.
Impressive at 54 inches in width, the Dresser is a true statement piece in any mid-century collection. This Dania piece is rated by us at 9 out of 10 as to condition. A near flawless top with great walnut lines showing throughout. The height is 30 inches with a depth of 18 1/2 inches. 6 drawers with the Dania drawer fronts completes a great dresser either used with the set or standing alone on its own. The legs and lower section is banded with the brass banding indicative of a Dania line, Merton Gershon piece.
Great little accent stand for the side of the bed. If space is an issue, these could easily be re-purposed into the living area or den as end tables. Standing at 25 inches they will hold any lamp at just the right height for reading and tabling the alarm clock. The top depth is 14 inches angling down wards to a depth of 17 inches. The width of the stands is 22 inches.
King size headboard - possibly the hardest piece to locate and almost never seen up for sale. It measures in at 81 1/4 inches in width by 1 1/2 inches in thickness and is 36 inches in height. It is is top condition and we would rate it solidly at 9.5 of 10 condition. The original rails, pins and bolts are also included.
